LCMHC, RMT, TRUE COLORS FACILITATOR
I am a Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor as well as a Reiki Master Teacher and True Colors Facilitator. I am practicing as a Holistic Therapist at Docked Ships, LLC. We help high functioning individuals (experiencing the effects of sustained resiliency) thrive in their relationship with self and others.
I am a woman (she, her) of African American descent framed with a collectivistic Afro-centric cultural perspective. I received my Master of Arts in Professional Counseling at Liberty University in 2019. I advocate for marginalized communities/issues such as high functioning Black & Brown women (and their families), LGBTQIA persons, and body positivity. I consider myself a social scientist and a researcher-practitioner. I study prevalent wellness patterns among minorities to identify appropriate evidence-based treatment approaches.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy: An approach recognizing the thoughts patterns that cause problems, discovering what thoughts are actually true, and finding relief by adopting more truthful and helpful thinking patterns.
Attachment Therapy: An approach that helps to mend or recover from fractured family relationships by fostering a sense of security and the supportive foundation to connect with others.
Solutions Focused Therapy: A goal-setting approach to identify and clarify targets by the use of direct questioning regarding change when steps were taken to resolve problems.
Spiritually-Based Therapy: A client-centered, introspective approach that allows reflection relative to cultural connections and belief systems, in which spirit is the essence of one's existence. Freedom and creativity are used to engage transcendent meanings. Cognitive and philosophic areas of thought as well as aspects of emotions and behavior are utilized to make a plan; for a life of interconnectedness within a greater existence outside of humankind.
Chakra Therapy: An approach utilizing the knowledge of ancient Vedic principles of energy centers that align our spine. Each energy center is responsible for the input, processing, and assimilation of day-to-day information. Each energy center correlates with the developmental and psychological stages of growth and life experiences such as trauma that can block the energy centers causing mental, physical, spiritual and emotional blockages.
Mind/Body Techniques/Mindfulness: These techniques are used to assist in the integration of the mind using deep breathing exercises and meditation. Breath work is utilized to assist in resolving symptoms such as trauma, pain, anxiety, and depression.
Psychotherapeutic Reiki: A Eastern philosophy of healing using “energy” techniques such as “laying of hands” of the practitioner to ease stress, depression, anxiety, and pain. It is commonly used to promote relaxation and healing on all levels of the subtle energy body combined with traditional Western approach of “talk therapy” to address issues that are causing blockages. This healing technique is based on the ability to channel energy to activate the natural healing process of the body, which helps to restore physical, spiritual, and emotional wellbeing.
