I am a Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor Supervisor and I provide individual and couple counseling services in Charlotte, NC.  I  was born in Ghana, located in West Africa. I migrated to the United States when I was 11  years  old. It was a very difficult transition, coming to a new country, learning a new language and adjusting to a new culture while at the same time going through puberty! Therapy helped me to manage a great deal of anxiety that I experienced during that time period.  It also helped  me to discover my passion  for helping others through difficult life situations.  I earned my  Bachelor of Arts degree  in Psychology at UNC Charlotte and my Masters degree Community Mental Health at Winthrop University.

 

I love what I  do and empathy comes natural. I have a warm, compassionate yet direct and genuine style to helping people. I  am open-minded and non-judgmental. I provide a safe enviroment which in turn encourages each person's individual life story to be told.
