About The Black Girl Healing Project

Black women, we are are strong . We put capes on our backs and support ourselves, our families, and our communities. But often, it’s to our own detriment.


It’s time for change.

I am a A Registered Dance/Movement Psychotherapist and Holistic Nutritionist.

I created The Black Girl Healing Project because as a black woman living with depression, I often felt alone and misunderstood. I also watched many of the women in my family struggle with mental illnesses like depression, anxiety, borderline personality disorder, and dissociative identity disorder (to name a few).


They struggled because “black people don’t get depressed,” and “you don’t put all your business in the street” by getting help and seeing a therapist.


The Black Girl Healing Project is the first step, for me, in breaking the cycle and changing the narrative around mental health within the black community.

My goal here is to:

  • Provide a safe space for open, honest conversations about mental health.

  • Help you to understand your emotions feel them safely using body-based interventions, like dance/movement.

  • Offer resources to help you nourish your body physically, mentally, and emotionally, so you have a sense of what it might feel like to be well.

Want the official credentials?

  • I love learning (and debt, apparently) and have an M.S in Holistic Nutrition from Hawthorn University and an M.S in Dance/Movement Psychotherapy from Sarah Lawrence College.  

  • I can throw down in the kitchen thanks to my mama and a Diploma from The International Culinary Center.
