Let me tell you.
I am a culturally sensitive, black mother, who is in a multiracial relationship. I understand that trauma and life can feel hard, lonely, and challenging; and many times it is easy to feel stuck, or like you are in a deep hole that you can’t get out of. Other times, you have difficult decisions to make, and need someone who from outside of your current support system, to listen and help you look at it from a different perspective. I genuinely desire to see people thrive. I have a lot of experience working with REAL people, which equips me with empathy and drives me to treat each client with respect and non judgement. I have worked with youth from low-income communities, and with women who have experienced trauma. I also have experience practicing therapy in both private and in patient settings.
