When asked what made me decide to pursue something in the field of mental health, I never quite know how to answer that question because becoming an advocate of wellness and a mental health expert always felt like a calling. I was always interested in the complexity of the human mind and our inherent resilience as a people.
The people I come from are the epitome of resilience and beauty. I was born in Sierra Leone, West Africa and immigrated to North Carolina when I was a toddler with my family, where I was raised. After high school, I moved to New York and attended University at Albany for my undergraduate and advanced standing graduate degree in Social Work. Over the course of my career, I have worked in non profit, telehealth, healthcare, and community based settings where I provided therapy to young and older adults. I have helped many individuals work through issues such as anxiety, addiction, work stress, depression, relationship & family issues, adjustment disorders, race related trauma and challenges accompanied with navigating cultural experiences. My diverse professional experience has led me to open my private practice in 2022.
