Clients I’m Passionate About Working with
I am passionate about serving the Black community as a Trauma Therapist. I work with Millennial, professional Black women who are looking to Heal traumatic childhood experiences and reach their highest potential. I Admire and find the people I serve Courageous as they choose to break unhealthy generational patterns.
Common childhood traumatic experiences that I work with are:
- Emotional Neglect/ Abandonment
- Incarceration and or Impacted by Incarceration
- Sexual Violence
- Sexual, Physical & Verbal Abuse
- Dysfunctional Family Dynamics
The Healing journey I offer includes; Trauma informed techniques and holistic approaches such as Yoga and Cannabis wellness education. I collaborate with clients to establish a treatment plan reviewed every 90 days to identify their mental health and wellness goals.
I’m from New Haven, where I growing up in poverty exposed me to; violence, social disorganization, systematic racism and The War on Drugs. Coming from a disadvantaged community lead me to the “Helping” field. I chose Trauma as my therapeutic specialty because I survived childhood abuse and I suffered alone for a long time. With the use of Therapy, Meditation, Yoga and Cannabis I shifted from Surviving to Thriving. I want to share all the practices, techniques and healing tools that helped me heal with the people I serve.
I obtained a Bachelors degree in Psychology and Criminal Justice from Eastern CT State University and a Master’s degree in Community & Forensic Psychology from University of New Haven. For more information on my work experience see my most updated Curriculum Vitae.
When I’m not in Therapy Session
When I’m not in therapy with clients, I’m training to become a Yoga Instructor, and advocating for social justice. Currently I’m a board member of the Stop Solitary CT committee, the goal is to dismantle CT prisons and end the use of isolated confinement in prisons. In addition I’m a committee member of Protection and Advocacy for Individuals with Mental Illness. I understand the importance of advocating for oppressive systems that directly negatively impact the Black community. My community.
