A Year of Growth

Just 14 months ago, my vision of a company providing multi-tiered mental health services for the widest range of people in the DMV came to life.

Since that time, we have opened two offices, with a third location on the way next year, served the community through psycho-education and consultation for teens in Fairfax County public schools; taught meditation to youngsters in middle school and high school; provided services to the restaurant and bar industry through mental health screening and seminars/outreach; aired a West Coast podcast on minority mental health; used social media to write blogs and post articles of interest for timely topics in psychology; been a contributor to local news sources for psychology; led mental health discussions at faith based and secular groups; given talks at local professional organizations such as the Maryland Psychological Association; partnered as a consultant for some of the most innovative private schools in the area; and established working relationships with other mental wellness professionals, including coaches, trainers, physicians, educators, attorneys, hospitals, advocates, activists, artists, writers; and so much more. 

Most important, I have had the great pleasure of working with a huge range of clients for testing, psychotherapy, and consultation, greatly individualized.

There is so much more to learn and do.
Mental health is for all. Stay tuned.

A Discussion on Mental Health & Wellness in the Restaurant Industry

I am so pleased to give back to the restaurant and bar industry, who nourish us.

Lack of healthcare, high stress work environments, substance abuse, racism, misogyny, living off tips, wage theft, labor abuses, mismanagement, no breaks…. All of these things and more contribute to restaurant workers overall health and wellness.

Join me Monday, July 15th with Sakinah A Bramble-Hakim of Green Goddess Radio, Simone Jacobson of Thamee & Toli Moli and Brian Schwartz of DC Health Link for a discussion about challenges and best practices in caring for ourselves while working in the industry. 

This event is sponsored by the Restaurant Opportunities Center of DC (ROC-DC) as part of their Health and Wellness Fair.
