I became a therapist like most of my colleagues in this field, to help others, and while this is true, my passion was and still is to empower, inspire and encourage, people everywhere. Growing up in Brooklyn, I never imagined that I could be a therapist, and make a lasting impact of the lives of others, in the way that I do now. There were no therapist of color that I knew off, when I was growing up, and I knew that one day I wanted people of color to have the choices, that I didn't. Having clients like you, who are ready to show up for yourself and do the work, is why I wanted to become a therapist. Knowing that I can be available for other people of color in this way, was and still is very important to me. My goal is to help all my clients get to where they want to in life, to grow and change into the amazing individuals, that they want to become and to live their best life now.
When I am not in the virtual room, I enjoy traveling and exploring the world, some of my favorite visited places include New Zealand, Africa and Venice Italy. I am a self-proclaimed foodie, who enjoys great cuisines and exploring food through different cultures and customs.
I practice a daily routine of prayers and meditations, before starting my day. This helps me feel empowered and ready to tackle my day, and whatever it may bring.
In order for me to totally recharge, I unplug both physically and mentally from my norm. I vacation several times throughout the year, usually in a relaxing atmosphere, such as the Caribbean. I'll often incorporate massages, walks, and beach time, during my stay. This helps me to totally recharge and rejuvenate myself, until the next time.
