PHD Candidate, Board Certified Sex Therapist, Licensed Mental Health Counselor
I began my journey growing up in Brooklyn, NY. I had the privilege to learn at an early age about the LGB, Transgender, and Kink/Poly community long before I knew I would seek training and specialize in these areas. Having family, friends, and working with those whose gender and sexuality were on a spectrum, I began to realize we live in a world that was unaccepting to those who did not identify as heterosexual or cisgender.
After graduating high school at the young age of 17, I enlisted and earned the title of becoming a United States Marine. After receiving a honorable discharge, it was then I made the decision to pursue my educational and professional goals. My experiences both personal and professional not only propelled me into my current career, but helped me as a Black female understand the privilege I may have over another (never thought I would say this) as well as the many racial, socioeconomic, and sexual discrimination I myself have experienced in our culture. This is why I am adamant about promoting awareness and advocating for People of Color within the communities I serve. It is the reason I will forever consider myself a student of life. I will continue to educate my self clinically and grow personally as a human being.

Board Certified Sex Therapist and Transgender Care Therapist | Sex Therapy Training Institute, Miami Florida
Becoming a Sex Therapist and Transgender Care Therapist has become one of the best decisions I could have ever made. Sex and the topic of sex is still consider taboo; I am so humbled to be a sex positive and affirming individual as well as psychotherapist. I earned my Board Certification from the Sex Therapy Training Institute(STTI) and my Board Certification in Transgender Care from the International Transgender Certification Association(ITCA). Both institutes founder and Director Dr. Carol Clark, has been a leader since the early 90’s in Sex Therapy and Transgender Care. She is a world renowned Sex Therapist, Clinical Sexologist, and Licensed Mental Health Counselor. Along with 4 other prolific women: Dr. Marilyn Volker, Dr. Maylin Batista, Dr. Cristina Sabroso, and Jessica Lam who make up the board for the International Transgender Certification Association, I was able to receive extensive training in Transgender Care and care for the Gender Non-Conforming/Gender Variant Communities; in addition to obtaining 150 hours and 10 hours of supervision of post graduate education in sex therapy. The state of Florida is the only state in the country having strict educational guidelines in order to use the Title “Sex Therapist.”
