Get to Know Me

Why did you become a mental health professional?

I wanted to create a safe space for people of color, particularly Black people. As a Black woman, seeking professional help is very challenging, and can be daunting when the professional does not under the Black experience.

What are your interests outside of work?

I enjoy spending time with family and friends, eating, and working out.

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

The first thing that I do in the morning, after completing my hygiene, of course, is walk my dog unless it's pouring rain. I enjoy the breeze or cold air. It helps me clear my head to create space for the day, enjoy the environment, and bond with my fur baby.

How do you recharge?

I work out pretty regularly, listen to music, and take space as I see fit. Whether I spend a day on the couch bingeing a show or self-care, like getting a pedicure.
