Here, I share a little bit about me, to help you decide if we would be a good match to help you in your journey. My knowledge and skills, wisdom, personality, and life experiences (the joyful and the painful moments) are all the tools that I use to help my clients.
I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in the state of California (License #48571), Oregon (License # T1492) and Texas (License #202775). I have over 14 years of experienced in the field and have been licensed more than 10 years. I have a master's in Counseling Psychology, a Master of Business Administration, and a bachelor's in Psychology (emphasis in Christian Behavioral Science) and Communication arts (emphasis in Theater Arts). I also have a certification in life coaching and prayer therapy. I went to California Baptist University for both my undergraduate and graduate studies in psychology. I was trained specifically in integration of Christians principles and behavioral science. My natural God-giving wisdom, as well as wisdom from of old - cross-culture knowledge that expands behind time and region, including African heritage way of life, is also interwoven in my work. I enjoy learning and am always finding opportunities to expand my knowledge bank, be it reading a book, doing research, attending workshops, or consulting with my peers.
I am a people person and enjoy getting to know others. I love helping others and am passionate about what I do. I believe in living life to the fullest and in helping others in their own journey. I am warm, considerate, and not afraid to challenge you towards growth. I enjoy reading, writing, walking, hiking, dancing in my living room and watching movies, talking on the phone with friends, spending time with my family, traveling, and eating out - trying an authentic ethnic dish.
I am a wife and a mother, and have the privilege of raising 3 young children ages 2-7 (I have lost 2 children through miscarriage and a stillbirth). I have juggled a full time career for several years and now, during this season, I was home for a short time with them, and now I get to have the flexible life/schedule I have desired, balancing career and motherhood on my time.. Through my children and husband, I have learned many things about me, the world around me, and God. For me being a wife and mother is a journey, and each day I learn something new. I am Haitian. I was born and raised in Haiti until the age of 12. I am a Christian. For me, Christianity is who I am and who I am becoming. It is my purpose and my destiny. It is the foundation of and central reason for my work. I become an avenue of hope, healing, and support to you because I am a Christian. I live to demonstrate the love, the power, and the goodness of God through my work and my life. I work with clients from all walks of life.
If you are looking for someone whom you can connect with on an experiential level, I am that therapist. I look forward to assisting you and be an avenue of hope, healing, and support to you, in your life's journey.
