Teletherapy is online counseling administered via electronic platforms such as phone, computer, tablet, or any device that has high-resolution, live video conferencing capabilities. Through our teletherapy services, we look forward to connecting with you in the comfort of your own home.
3 Easy Steps
This 15-minute consultation allows you to ask questions about our teletherapy practice to determine if we are a good fit. If we mutually agree to move forward, you will be required to complete an initial evaluation. The initial evaluation can be completed immediately after the consultation, or it can be scheduled for a later date at your convenience.
During this session, we will go over the informed consent and answer any questions you may have pertaining to it. After you sign the consent form, the remainder of this session will serve as a get-to-know-you session where we will gather background information from you to determine your needs and work together to help define your goals for therapy.
Each one-on-one teletherapy session is approximately 45-50 minutes. Because every individual is unique, our therapy sessions are not one size fits all. Through counseling, we engage you by paying close attention to your stories, validating your feelings, and working on a plan to help you overcome your obstacles and live life at your best.

Anxiety & Depression
Anxiety and depression are prevalent mental health disorders in the United States. It is estimated that 40 million adults aged 18 and older are affected by anxiety disorders, while approximately 17 million American adults experience depression each year (ADAA, 2020).
Although depression and anxiety disorders are distinct conditions, it is important to note that individuals with depression may also exhibit symptoms of anxiety.
Suicide risk for Black boys between the ages of 5 and adolescence is 2-3 times higher than that of white boys. Depression in Black males may often go undetected due to its unique presentation, resulting in Black males being placed at a disadvantage because their symptoms are more likely to be overlooked or dismissed.
According to Census data, 25% of U.S. families are headed by a single parent, and 80% of single-parent headed households are moms. Whether a child has one parent or two, children thrive when they have parenting that’s nurturing, warm, sensitive, responsive, and flexible.
Positive relationships are important to our overall mental wellness. Conflicts within relationships create stress, and if persistent, can be detrimental to the health and well-being of all individuals involved. The key to having a successful relationship is by engaging in healthy communication.
Racial trauma encompasses the mental and emotional harm inflicted by regular exposure to various forms of racism, including racial bias, ethnic discrimination, and racial abuse and violence. Black Americans and other ethnic minorities are negatively impacted physically, psychologically, and emotionally due to prolonged exposure to racism.
Symptoms of racial trauma often resemble those associated with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Racism manifests itself in three distinct forms:
Systemic racism: Designed to perpetuate the oppression of minority groups. It is experienced when doctrines, institutions, and policies operate to generate racial inequality.
Interpersonal racism: Demonstrated through acts of bigotry, bias, prejudice, and microaggressions. Interpersonal racism involves individual interactions that perpetuate discriminatory behavior.
Internalized racism: Involves the acceptance of negative stereotypes and societal beliefs about one’s own racial group.
Life transitions are inevitable. They can be filled with excitement, joy, and happiness, or they can be filled with grief, loss, and despair. Although you may not have control over certain life transitions such as loss, you do remain in control over how you live your life moving forward.
