Hey…Welcome…I’m so glad you made it here. Go ahead and take a deep breath…let your shoulders drop…release your tongue from the roof of your mouth…let yourself be present for a moment and thank yourself for taking this first step. I know how good it feels to release and let yourself just be. I know you’ve been holding on to all this stuff (the hurt, the pain, the shame, the heartache, the anger, the frustration, the disappointment) for so long it's hard to just let it go. You may even be thinking what would my life look like without this stuff? Who would I be without this stuff? Imagine what it would be like to really let go…to free yourself. Imagine what it would be like to experience inner peace…to be the best version of yourself. I imagine that it would look good on you…like the perfect lighting that makes your skin glow just right in that selfie…like a fresh line up or perfect hair do with a new fit. Imagine what it would be like to look in the mirror and truly see yourself for the first time and to actually love what you see.
This is my hope for you! For you to experience a new kind of freedom & wellness, through trauma therapy . Freedom to define yourself. Freedom from the restraints of society or people/situations which don’t have your best interest at heart. Freedom to shine, glow, & grow. Allow me to assist you in your journey to be unapologetically you!
My goal in counseling is to help you move past what has you stuck, to let go of the pain & anger you may be holding on to so you can create an optimal life. Ask yourself: Who would I be if society did not tell me who I should be? If you are ready for the answer click here to see how individual therapy can help. I provide sessions virtually and am available to assist client in Detroit, Ypsilanti, Flint or anywhere in Michigan. Come get dis healin!!
The Akoben is the adinkra symbol for the war horn. The war horn is used as a call to action, a call to take up arms and prepare for battle. In Detroit and other predominantly Black cities everyday can feel like a battle. The Akoben represents the purest intentions of the work I do in counseling, fighting for the minds and spirit of our people. So many things in society are meant to indoctrinate you into believing that you are not enough, that you are flawed, or that you need to be better.
There is power in knowing yourself and defining yourself and individual therapy can help you feel more confident. There may be times when it seems like a battle; Akoben gives you tools to fight. You know what they say, "if you stay ready, you ain't gotta get ready."
I am passionate about counseling and giving people the tools to free themselves. I am nurturing and supportive, people who work with me in individual therapy feel empowered to be unapologetic and to prioritize their peace. I love working with people of African descent in the diaspora who are intentional about their healing and connected to or reconnecting to our African roots. I also specialize in trauma therapy for adult children of emotionally immature parents.
