Why did you become a mental health professional?

I became a therapist to better understand people after my own obstacles as a child being severely bullied sparked my curiosity. I began learning psychology and sociology and once I began helping people I learned it was my passion. I love to work in advocacy spaces and serve individuals who traditionally do not have access to therapy.

What are your interests outside of work?

Outside of work I spend most my time with my wellness brand, Black Wellness Initiative. I teach self-care techniques including yoga to youth at local non-profits. I also create a social justice podcast called "Mind Over Melanin" to discuss hot topics that impact BIPOC people.

What is one thing you do daily that supports your well-being?

Mindfulness and meditation help me on a daily basis and I journal and work out less often but it typically makes me feel much better if I need the boost.

What book have you read more than once?

I have read Post-Traumatic Slave Syndrome more than once because it gives insight and a perspective in how slavery has impacted African Americans and their culture today.

Do you have any pets?

I have a 12 year old shih-tzu named Desmond Sawyer. He is named from the show "Lost" and he loves to chew through the airport-approved bags while in-flight and run loose while I am sleep. He has done it 3 times over the decade and it is quite embarrassing when it happens!
