I have 10 years of experienced licensed psychologist, speaker and consultant. She’s the owner/CEO of Gifted Counseling, LLC; a well-knowing practice located in Atlanta, Georgia. My approaches have influenced people, organizations, businesses and companies all over the world

I am one of the most sought after public speakers, consultants and psychologist alive today.

I obtained her B.S. in Psychology from Florida State University; M.S. in Counseling at Fordham University and Ph.D at Howard University in Washington D.C. She’s American Psychology Association (APA) accredited.

I have worked in the field of psychology for over 10 years. I have expertise in multicultural counseling and couples counseling. I have specialized training in assisting couples with increasing intimacy and rebuilding trust after infidelity. I help couples build effective communication skills, so that both partners feel understood and validated.

What’s more, I am experienced in working with a range of clinical issues (schizophrenia, bi-polar, major depression, anxiety, career counseling, and healing from a break up, acculturation issues for immigrants). With expertise in improving sleep and building stress management skills, I have provided consultation to organizations and agencies to improve their productivity and efficiency. Over the years, I have gained specialized experience with adults, youth and children in multiple settings including a psychiatric hospital, domestic violence shelter, community agencies, court systems, elementary/middle schools and college counseling centers.

With regard to assessments, I have conducted psycho-educational evaluations with the D.C. Superior Court System for youth facing criminal charges. Additionally, I conducted neuro-psychological assessments within a college counseling center population. Working with adjudicated youth, I have developed programs to improve self-esteem, behavior functioning and college readiness.

I have spent several years teaching at the college level. Specifically, I have taught the following college level courses: General Psychology, Family Counseling, and Multicultural Foundations in Teaching. In the position of Student Support Team Coordinator for Amos 1 Elementary School, I developed interventions for children with special needs and behavioral concerns. With previous experience, working as an elementary and middle school counselor, I am skilled in play therapy, family counseling and parental coaching. I have also facilitated parenting classes to help facilitate effective discipline practices and improve co-parenting skills

As a therapist, my role has been to provide a supportive safe environment to empower my clients. This allows them to make decisions, break past patterns and move closer to their goals. I use Schema and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy which focuses on recognizing and challenging unproductive and self -defeating thought processes. I take an active directive approach as we work together to create a treatment plan that transitions the work that we do in the office to my clients daily lives.

Often times, when couples come to my office they are at a standstill or in intense conflict. I have used specialized Gottman techniques to treat a number of couples. With research experiences and lengthy clinical training, I have developed an expertise in working with couple to enhance communication, improve intimacy, develop conflict resolution skills, and rebuild trust after infidelity.
