Specializing in helping Black women recover from mother-daughter trauma, spiritual abuse, toxic friendships, & poverty trauma. 

Founder + CEO

Before the beautiful family, the businesses, and the flourishing friendships, I was a girl growing up in the projects who imagined running a low-income household of her own as freedom. Little did I know back then, escaping dysfunction was more about mindset than location. As I fought my way through the traumas of a dysfunctional family, impoverished community, unsafe school district, and abusive church, I gravitated toward painful friendships and romantic relationships and despite being in seemingly more secure environments, struggled to find safety internally or externally. After suffering from several years of educational and workplace abuse, I was diagnosed with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder and began a journey toward mental, emotional, and spiritual health that made sense out of a life that once felt too complicated to ever have overall significance. 


My passion for helping you thrive after interpersonal trauma is personal. Hidden somewhere deep beneath all the shit you’ve been through is a woman who got lost in the pain and chaos, and crippled by fear and hopelessness, decided she’d just stay there underneath the hurt, crushed but shielded. It’s my purpose to reconnect you with her and usher you into a life of authenticity, wholeness, and fullness.
