EDUCATIONAL BACKGROUND

I’m a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT). I earned my Bachelor of Science in Psychology (pre-med) and Master of Arts in Marriage and Family Therapy (MFT) degrees from Syracuse University and my doctoral degree in Couple and Family Therapy (CFT) at Drexel University. I am currently an Assistant Professor of Marriage and Family at Seton Hall University where I teach the next generations of mental health practitioners and healers. I’m an AAMFT clinical fellow and designated Clinical Approved Supervisor.  

TREATMENT APPROACH

I’m collaborative in my work with clients. Together, we move forward to find their voices, heal their pain, renew toxic thoughts/perceptions, and make necessary transformative changes in their lives. Whether they’re dealing with the anxiety of work related-stress, relationship difficulties, communication problems, lack of intimacy, childhood trauma, loss of a loved one, or stressors related to being a Black person or POC in society, I guide clients in finding their courage. They will realize in themselves the strength to navigate the painful and difficult terrains in their personal, emotional and relational lives.

My approach to therapy is grounded in Multicultural Relational Perspective with integration of Family Systems, Contextual, Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT), Gottman’s couples treatment methods, Solution-Focused and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT).
