Georgia O'Keeffe once said, "To create one's own world in any of the arts takes courage."" As both an art therapist and counselor, I understand the courage it takes to create a better life for yourself using comprehensive mental health care. I am an art therapist and counselor working in private practice in the Greater Washington DC area. I am a native of Tampa, FL, and I graduated from the George Washington University with a M.A. in art therapy in 2007 and a proud graduate of Howard University with a BFA in fine arts in 2002.
Prior to establishing my private practice, I worked in various mental health capacities including schools, hospitals, artist studios, and outpatient facilities. In 2007-14, I received trauma-informed training while working with people with Posttraumatic Stress Disorder and trauma-related disorders at the Psychiatric Institute of Washington (PIW). In addition to practicing therapy, I enjoy collaborating with other clinicians. In 2014, I transitioned to my private practice full-time, where I specializes in art therapy and psychotherapy with clients ranging from adolescent to adulthood.
During the course of my career, I devoted time and energy to working with Black and Indigenous People of Color (BIPOC) who struggle with race-based stress and trauma. I have co-facilitated groups for BIPOC women that focuses on the intersectionality of race, gender and intergenerational trauma. In addition, I enjoy collaborating with other clinicians, from presenting at conferences to co-authoring various publications. I am also a Maryland-approved supervisor for LGPCs and an Art Therapy Clinical Supervisor (ATCS).
Within recent years I have shift my focus and priority to holistic teachings and have introduced healing practices into my therapuetic session. I completed Level One training in Internal Family System (IFS) which further changed the trajectory of how I engage with my clients. In 2020, I earned a 200 hr Yoga Teacher certification (RYT-200), Reiki Master Teacher (Usui Shiki Ryoho) and completed training in Somatic Experiencing. I have completed training in MARI, the Mandala Assessment Research Instrument, and I am currently writing a chapter for a future art therapy book.
Currently, I am working on expanding my practice and developing creative healing and intersectional practices. On my "days off", I enjoy taking care of my plants, hiking, and watching anime with my kids.

“True mastery of life’s tasks depends upon a disciplined freedom, whose model may be found in the artistic process (Edith Kramer).” As an Art Therapist, my desire is to be a guide in your artistic process as you come to your own means of liberation, grounding, self-awareness, and inner peace. In our practice, we will work to develop personalized creative tools to work through all you may be seeking in therapy. Whether managing stress, depression, anxiety, grief, trauma, and/or parenting complexities; my goal as a practitioner is to be present with you in facing and navigating through all of life’s dynamic terrain. I have a person-centered approach that is grounded in Humanism, Social Justice Competencies, Feminist Therapy, and Gestalt Therapy.
