Where did you grow up?

Military Brat

What personal challenges have you overcome or are working through as a result of your upbringing?

Growing up in a household with a parent in the military can be very challenging. As a result, I was able to observed the breakdown of my parent's marriage at a very early age. These issues led to their divorce. Due to the ongoing challenges of their co-parenting relationship and the unhealthy 2nd marriage of my custodial parent, I experienced a disconnect in the relationship with both of my parents for many years. Through open and honest communication, we've grown tremendously.

 

What inspired you to become a therapist?

 I attribute my education in Social Work to aiding with my own self-discovery. I'd taken some elective courses in SW and it piqued my interest but I was pregnant, a Senior and too close to graduating, so changing majors wasn't an option. I gave birth to my daughter less than a month after graduating college. I was 22yo with a newborn and had a LOT of learning to do. Returning to school for my BSW and MSW was a path of healing in the midst of what could have been utter chaos.

Where did you grow up?

West Baltimore - Edmondson Ave. & Monroe St.

What personal challenges have you overcome or are working through as a result of your upbringing?

As the eldest of my mother's 4 children, responsibility came early in our single-parent home. My family has been afflicted with many of the challenges that come with survival. My journey has included fatherlessness, drug addiction, codependency, and neglect.

 

What inspired you to become a therapist?

Life is a journey to be explored not to dictated. Disturbingly the journey can be rugged for womxn, indigenous people, queer individuals, and folx of color. We all need someone to walk this journey with us, to be a reflection + hold hope. This is what I needed growing up. When I found a culturally reflective therapist to hold space for me, my world changed - I was finally seen + celebrated. I became a therapist to create safe spaces, facilitate healing, and empower those who look like me or share my same identities to reclaim their voice + heal their hearts.

What are your specialties?

My areas of expertise include Depression + Anxiety, Intergenerational + Cultural Trauma, Recovery + Body Positivity for Womxn, Family Conflict, Emerging Adulthood Development, LGBTQ+ Affirming, and Clinical Supervision
