As a single mom of color, I have witnessed the extreme societal pressure placed on mothers to choose between their career or their children; leaving little room to even provide attention to their own self care. It can make you a times question if God sees what you are going through. This ignited a passion within me to use my skills to support women to navigate through the chaos. My goal is to work with those women who may need help coping through these very real everyday stressors. Not a mom? That's ok! I can also empathize with the pressure placed on women of color in the workplace to work so much harder than their male counterparts. Its my hope to create a safe space for you to explore these feelings.
It can be challenging at times for women to have access to a therapist who can empathize with their experiences. Through a strengths based approach, I would love to share my personal experience with being a woman of color, a mom, a non-denominational Christian, as well as a goal oriented professional in non-profit leadership and mental health. Through this journey, I want you to find a sense of fulfillment, hope in Jesus Christ, purpose, and self worth and I would be honored to take that walk with you. Our sessions will not be for me to "social work" you, but for you to unload some of the pressure and burden to make the ride a bit easier- maybe even know that you have someone praying for you. No matter what it feels like, you got this... you can do this! explore these feelings.

Shaquala listens and understands me. But what I really like is that she listens really closely what I’m saying as well.
