An individual that possesses exquisite self-awareness, high emotional intelligence, a crisp and clear way of communicating and most importantly, a broad vision that keys in on important details, is an individual qualified to be a successful therapist and life coach. As an LMHC (NY) and LPC (CT), I am an individual that embodies all of these qualities, using my personal experiences to shape and mold perspectives and am now prepared to share with the world.

My goal is to work with women of color to achieve overall security so they can live a life that boasts freedom, accomplishment and self-confidence. The coaching process is a two way interchange of energies and learning; an experience that would be enriching to all involved. Counseling is a process of collaborative work allowing the client to lead the way in order to alleviate life’s day-to-day challenges. My role is to walk you through the healing process.

As a survivor of sexual assault, I understand first hand what it’s like to be violated and confused. I understand what it’s like to feel insecure and struggle to navigate the dating world when I haven’t truly healed. If you struggle with intimacy, genuine connections, self esteem/confidence & FOMO (fear of missing out) look no further; your healing journey can start today!
