Meet the face
behind the posts

I am a clinical mental health counselor and an educator. I have been in private practice for almost a decade. During this time, I have encountered hundreds of individuals to listen to their narratives and to help them heal in some way. Additionally, I have my own story. I hope to weave takeaways and lessons learned over the years from these interactions and from my personal life into informative and thought-provoking posts. 

Here's all the boring stuff you would expect to see on this type of website. I have worked in the non-profit, public health, healthcare, and higher education sectors. I have provided wellness services (e.g., advising, mental, behavioral, personal, and career counseling, mentoring, and coaching) to diverse populations within these industries. My specialty populations include at-risk and underprepared students, low-income, adult learners, emerging adults, Black Americans, and communities of color.

I have a PhD in Counselor Education and Supervision (CES) from the University of the Cumberlands, a Master of Science degree in Higher Education Counseling/Student Affairs, and have completed post-master coursework in clinical mental health from West Chester University. I am a licensed professional counselor (LPC) in Pennsylvania and New Jersey and hold two national counselor certifications from the National Board for Certified Counselors (NBCC). 

 

I currently reside in Philadelphia, PA, with my long-term partner and a polydactyl cat, Grey. I would like to travel more. I also enjoy working out (e.g., HIIT, strength training, weight-lifting). Currently, I have a small caseload of clients. If interested in mental and behavioral health services, feel free to inquire by sending a message below. I am contracted with Rula and Amwell Health (LiveHealth Online).
