I began my career in psychology as an undergraduate student at Vanderbilt University. While there, I double majored in Medicine, Health, and Society (MHS) and Psychology and completed my Bachelor’s in MHS and Psychology, with a concentration in Abnormal Psychology.  I completed my Masters in Education in Human Development at Vanderbilt University, Peabody College, and continued my clinical work in the Counseling Psychology program at The University of Memphis.  

I consider myself a post-colonial/Black Feminist scholar with a deep appreciation for activism and multicultural foci in and outside of therapy. I approach therapy with an emphasis on relationships and culture and integrate emotion-focused, body/somatic, and process-oriented techniques in session.  

I believe therapy is a collaborative process where the therapist and client co-create meaning, growth, and change. I see the client as the expert of their experiences as we explore together the root of their wellbeing and healing.
