It's my job to help my clients get to a place where they are putting themselves first, no longer bending to other people’s needs and desires before theirs, excited about their life, less stressed, and confident and secure about the women God has called them to be regardless of what they have achieved. This is where I operate in my zone of genius. I truly love it here and can't wait to serve YOU!
Now I know the importance of making sure I’m well and of taking breaks to rest and enjoy life outside of what I do. I know how to identify my needs and boundaries and communicate them with ease. Now I know that what I do doesn’t define who I am. I know that my worth isn’t tied to my achievements. And that’s on PERIOD.
Now I work with my clients to challenge the same narratives I struggled with, that have them thinking that they're lazy, unproductive, selfish, and bad people for setting boundaries, leaning into rest, and caring for themselves in all ways.
When I started my last business back in 2016, I prided myself on being a "hard worker" and what that meant for me was working my 9-5 and then working on my business for an additional 8-10 hours each night. 3am, 4am, 5am nights (well mornings) were the NORM. I thought that in order for me to be “successful” as a service-based entrepreneur, that I had to be extremely self-sacrificing and sleep-deprived. I would even skip meals in order to keep working.
I'm a serial entrepreneur who’s used my academic background and corporate experience to launch companies and programs for millennial women of color.
As a personal finance coach for one of my former businesses, Debt Free Black Girl, I realized that money wasn’t the true issue in my clients’ lives. It was the anxiety, toxic relationships, trauma, fear and doubt, avoidance—their MINDSETS—that held them back from thriving in their finances and other areas of life. So in late 2018, I pivoted my business to address more of those topics.
And in June 2019, all of my experiences led me to launch Her Therapy Space, which currently offers individual therapy services and an online community where millennial women of color receive tools, resources and the accountability needed to do the work beyond the (therapy) couch.

Freedom to take a vacay just because. Freedom to say no to clients who aren't a good fit. Freedom to sit in the house and do nothing. Freedom to make decisions based on what you want and not what you think you should be doing. Freedom to ultimately live the life that you desire and deserve.
As a service based entrepreneur, one of your greatest assets is TIME. It’s easy to get caught up if you don’t have healthy, clear boundaries in place.
