I’m here to help you!
I’m a perinatal psychotherapist, trained birth doula and reiki practitioner helping families decipher the funk of parenting.
My absolute passion in life is motherhood. As a working mother of 2 active boys, I understand that feeling like yourself again is critical to a soon-to-be, new and seasoned mom.
I received my Bachelors and Masters degrees from Morgan State University School of Social Work. I became licensed in 2011. Realizing my passion for helping mothers, I became a trained birth doula in May 2014 and completed the Postpartum Support International Certificate Training in Perinatal Mood and Anxiety Disorders in June 2015. I’m also trained in Motivational Interviewing, Trauma Informed Care and Safe Spaces for LGBTQIA People. In March 2018, I completed the Maternal Mental Health Intensive training through Seleni Institute.
Currently, I am involved in the perinatal mental health community as a member and Maryland co-coordinator for Postpartum Support International, a board member for 2020 Mom Project, a Perinatal Safe Spot for the National Perinatal Task Force and Co-Founder of the Perinatal Mental Health Alliance for Women of Color.
In my spare time, I enjoy drinking hot chocolate during any season, journal writing, reading a good non-fiction book and crockpot cooking. 🙂
My philosophy is that ‘every family should be nurtured and cared for during their transition to parenthood. It is a rites of passage that has no manual, only the virtue of patience, sacrifice and sense of community that is necessary to hold space for a family on the other side of birth.’
