Are we a good match?

Are you here because you've been questioning certain symptoms or behaviors? You might have asked yourself, 'Am I clinically depressed?' or wondered if there's an explanation for certain patterns like autism or ADHD. Perhaps you're simply seeking answers, asking, 'What's going on with me?' Through a comprehensive assessment process, you will leave my office with a clear understanding of your strengths and any areas of concern. I specialize in evaluating individuals from the age of 4 and above.

For children and adolescents, these evaluations serve as a valuable tool to pinpoint any diagnoses or concerns that might be impacting your daily life, both at home and in school. The comprehensive report also includes tailored recommendations to support and accommodate a student's specific challenges.

Many adults seek evaluations to provide insight into lifelong challenges they've faced. These assessments offer a roadmap by providing a clear understanding of any new diagnoses or insights gained. Additionally, these evaluations will provide you with an extensive list of recommendations for further action or support.

If you're seeking a genuine and collaborative therapist, I might just be the right fit for you! I'm passionate about empowering clients to regain control over their lives, establish boundaries, heal from past traumas, and navigate the overwhelming stress they face. Let's work together to break the notion that being strong all the time is necessary. Remember, you deserve moments of rest. 

I specialize in working with Black professionals and entrepreneurs who find it challenging to embrace a softer approach to life. If you're seeking someone who understands the complexities you face, wants to explore life beyond the job, and is ready to untangle the knots of trauma, I'm here to support you.

Furthermore, my passion extends to supporting parents and caregivers in nurturing better relationships with their children and managing challenging behaviors. My approach is relationship-focused, initially concentrating on fortifying the foundation of the parent-child relationship. I prioritize praising positive behaviors before focusing on setting rules and consequences.

If you're ready to embark on a journey of self-discovery, healing, and transformation, let's connect. Together, we can explore your concerns, untangle complexities, and pave the way for a brighter and more harmonious future.
