I am currently completing my doctoral degree of Counselor Education and Supervision at The Chicago School of Professional Psychology. After such a tumultuous time in the program my colleagues and I published an article highlighting the experience of African American women in academia. As a mother of a 14 year old young lady with Sickle Cell Disease, I advocate for health equity, increased funding and awareness for this rare blood disease. My life journey has taught me the importance of embracing the pain, identifying lessons and moving beyond the turmoil. I carry this motto while counseling clients, educating students and advocating for justice.
As I answer the calling on my life as a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor, I use Cognitive Behavioral and Constructivist theories in the building of effective therapeutic relationships. Throughout our relationship thoughts will shift, behaviors will alter, ideas challenged and goals will be met. I would be honored to travel along your life journey seeking a sense of homeostasis and life balance.
