Evolving Into Your Most Authentic Self
Over the last decade, I’ve been helping my clients find their optimal wellness through developing a deeper understanding of their past and how it impacts their present and provide them with a safe space to heal and process experiences and provide the tools to continue to evolve into their best and most authentic selves. I aim to take a holistic wellness approach that prioritizes your well-being and celebrates all aspects of your true self. It’s time to start nurturing your mind and body.
Scheduling a consultation is ideal for individuals looking to discuss professional and career development, for professional's interested in improving their maternal mental health practices with Black mothers and for those interested in starting private practices.
With over a decade of experience in the field of mental health, social work and psychology I have gained a wealth of knowledge that I incorporate in my professional consulting services to assist with meeting your consultation needs.
