EMDR Certified Therapist

About Me

I love helping clients achieved their preferred lifestyle outcomes and working towards their goals. I love to read, watch documentaries and whatever's popular on Netflix at the time. I'm not your average EMDR therapist, and have no problem letting you know as such. I'm always interested in helping those who wish to help themselves.

Education & Experience

I graduated from Morehouse College with a Bachelors of Arts degree in Psychology in 2014. Afterwards, I graduated from Valdosta State University with a Masters of Science degree in Marriage and Family Therapy in 2016. Lastly, I am projected to graduate with a PhD in Marriage and Family therapy from Northcentral University in June of 2023. I have over 8 years of experience working with individuals, couples and families alike. Furthermore, I specialize in working with individuals who experience trauma, anxiety, depression, ptsd, and behavioral issues.
