My mission is to support, assist and empower African Americans and youth of color by providing culturally sensitive, patient centered and community-engaged clinical care to help heal and begin anew.

Hi there, I’m Shelia

Do you feel like the weight of the world is weighing you down? Life’s struggles are becoming unmanageable? Managing family, relationships and job is getting too hard?

I help clients find a healthy perception of themselves and strengthen their relationships. We can partner to identify what works and what doesn’t to create a new path that works better. I have experience with individual, family, and group modalities and will use an integrative approach based on your needs. This may include: client-centered, mindfulness, solution focused, and trauma-informed techniques.

I truly believe that having a good relationship and feeling comfortable with your therapist is an essential part of therapy. I provide a relaxed casual environment where you'll feel you can express yourself openly without judgement. I will warmly, but honestly guide you through your journey of change, adjustment, and growth. I look forward to talking with you and beginning a process that will lead to greater happiness, less stress, and an overall better quality of life.
