I am a single woman. I am NOT desperate. I am NOT depressed and I’m NOT going to just settle for just any man that comes my way.... no matter how many more women there are to men in the world. I accept love in my life- the RIGHT way - My way! From a man who DESERVES me. My name is (say your name) and I accept the single women empowerment pledge, do you?
I am a graduate level intern currently working towards receiving my Master’s in Marriage & Family Therapy from Touro University. I am also a graduate of Spelman College, a best-selling author, and received an Honorary Doctorate degree of Humanitarianism from Global International Alliance. I have over 10 years’ experience as a dating and love coach. I enjoy helping single and divorced women rediscover and reconnect with themselves in a way that enables them to live full and well-rounded lives, so that when they encounter love and find a life partner, they can enter that union whole, full of self-knowledge, and aware of their individual value.
As a MFT intern, I plan to inspire, empower, and strategize with single women to help provide them with the tools needed to have healthy romantic relationships. I am excited to expand my passion for helping single and divorced women into working with individuals, couples and families. Life can be hard and things in life can happen to us that turn us in a direction emotionally that can be difficult to navigate. I believe that it is important to have a safe environment where we can enter and talk through the challenging times in our life with someone who can help us explore ways to navigate those difficult times in a way that still allows us to achieve happiness and joy for living.
The approach I take to assist clients is typically based on the client(s) needs. Some of the modalities I use include but is not limited to Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Solution-Focused Therapy and The Gottman Method.
I believe that everyone has the ability within themselves to find their way back to joy. I love helping people and genuinely want to see everyone in every aspect of their lives – live their best life NOW!
