When I think of embarking on a path towards healing and wholeness, I think of how incredibly daunting and profound of an experience that can be. 

 

Thank you for considering me as a healing companion in your journey. 

 

I chose to name my practice Ashé as derived from the African Yoruba language to signify that this is an affirming space that we will be joining in together. 

 

Ashé in African spirituality has many meanings. To me, Ashé is grounded in these core concepts: intentionality, energy, empowerment, control and affirmation. Some folks, at their most emotionally distressed, fatigued and overwhelmed may feel that their life force is sucked out of them or that they no longer have power or control over what feels inevitable. What if that’s not the case?

 

At Ashé Mental Health and Wellness Space, LLC your treatment is focused on empowering you with energy and the tools to feel more in control of your life, identifying the paths of healing that work for you and affirming all of your lived experiences that impact your functioning in an unbiased and non-judgmental space.


Ashé starts with asking the question “What is your intention for yourself in this space?” and we will work together to create the environment in which you desire.

My Philosophy

I have a strange relationship with the words “expert” or “healer”. Yes, the therapeutic process is healing in it’s most successful implementation and professional education/experience is most definitely required for me to sit in this virtual seat across from you, but YOU are the expert in your life.

The beautiful thing about human beings and human behavior is that every single one of us is unique in our individual experiences-despite similarities such as age, gender, race, or sexual identity or orientation. 

 

My approach to psychotherapy is explorative and collaborative; you know yourself best so I rely on you to supply the map, and we navigate the path to healing together. For that reason, I consider myself a healing companion.

 

My job is to help you: reduce distress and pain caused by unpleasant emotions and distressing symptoms, increase curiosity and self awareness into your behavior, develop psychological fortitude and adapt to life circumstances all in order to live a happy healthy and fulfilled life. 

 

In some cases, complete symptom reduction may not be the goal. The goal may simply be to manage symptomatology and adapt around the uncontrollable.
