As a Civil War survivor from Liberia, I am keenly sensitive to human suffering and highly passionate with a sincere commitment to ameliorating problems in the lives of individuals so as to help them to maximize their full potential. My passion and devotion to working in the mental health field are driven by the axiom that one of the noblest things one can do with their life is to be of service to others. I have worked with children, adolescents, and adults in mental health hospitals, various social services agencies, community outreach, a mental health crisis hotline, and training the NYPD on mental health and suicide prevention.
I received my Master’s from New York University’s Counseling and Mental Health Wellness program and my Bachelor of Arts in Political Science and International Studies from Indiana University -Bloomington.
I have clinical experience with helping people from all backgrounds. I hope to use my life as a beacon of light to help those that experienced and endured traumatic experiences by finding meaning in their lives, self-determination, purpose, independence, and autonomy. I have an integrative approach to therapy to fit an individual's unique needs and implement existential therapy to uplift individuals. I worked with individuals experiencing depression, anxiety, stress, relational issues, suicidal ideations, maladaptive behavioral patterns, and traumatic and emotionally painful life experiences. I also focus on utilizing trauma-informed modalities, somatic interventions, and mindfulness to help individuals process the past to safely and confidently live in the present.
