For the curious, here is a little about me: I earned a B.A. from Spelman College in Atlanta, GA, a M.A. in Counseling from New York University, and a Ph.D. in Counseling Psychology from New York University. I have maintained certifications as a Grief Professional and Trauma Professional since 2020, and have more than 20 years of clinical experience working with African Americans in a variety of settings in New York and Delaware. I activated my Maryland license and boutique traumatic grief counseling practice in January 2020, and am an independently licensed LCPC in the state (LC12281).
If interested, you can also learn more about my own experience with traumatic perinatal loss and grief and its influence on my practice as a counselor through my conversation with grief counselor and Shapes of Grief Podcaster, Liz Gleeson, below. And, get a sense of what's currently on my mind by visiting my @baltimoregrief Instagram and LinkedIn pages, where I regularly post pieces related to our common and unique grief and bereavement journeys.
I am also an American Psychological Association Society for the Psychological Study of Social Issues award-winning course designer, an American Psychological Association Society for the Teaching of Psychology published course designer, a Teaching Excellence Award nominee, an endowed professorship awardee, Associate Professor of Psychology and Africana Studies, and former Co-Director of the Africana Studies program at a Baltimore, Maryland area college, where I continue to teach and conduct research on the intersections of Black Psychology and Wellbeing. In other words, licensed therapists are also in very good hands with me as their CE course instructor. You can learn more about my scholarship by visiting my Google Scholar and ResearchGate profiles.
