About Me

About Me Photo

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 I am a Certified Grief Coach through the International Coaching Federation approved Institute of Professional Grief Coaching program. I have more than 20 years of clinical experience working with African Americans in a variety of settings within the New York and Philadelphia Metropolitan Areas, and activated my Maryland license and boutique counseling practice in January 2020. I am a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor in the state (LC12281). 

If interested, you can learn more about my own experience with traumatic perinatal loss and grief and its influence on my practice as a counselor and coach through my conversation with Ireland based grief counselor and Shapes of Grief Podcaster, Liz Gleeson, below. You can also 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 also support those experiencing stressful life events and transitions outside of the realm of death.

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, a tenure awardee, and a former co-director of an Africana studies program at a Baltimore, Maryland area college. In other words, licensed and pre-licensed therapists are also in very good hands with me as their CE course instructor. Black Traumatic Grief Therapy: An Integrative Approach has been approved by NBCC for NBCC credit. Wisdom Counseling – Baltimore LLC is solely responsible for all aspects of the program. NBCC Approval No. SP-4601. If you are interested in completing this CE for 4 credit hours, please email me at [email protected] for a registration form. If interested, you can also read some of my scholarship on Black psychology and well-being on my Google Scholar and ResearchGate profiles.
