A Bit About Me

I grew up in Chicago's Southside (specifically the Woodlawn neighborhood before gentrification). Went to Andrew Carnegie Elementary School K-8 and then for High school I went at that time the only historically black private catholic high school Hales Franciscan. I worked my last two years of high school to help out with the rising tuition costs of my high school. After I graduated, I finally left Chicago to go to a small town called Holly Springs in Mississippi for college for a HBCU education. After graduating Magna Cum Laude, I quickly came back to Chicago and started working. After a few years, I decided to go back to Loyola University Chicago to study Social Work. After graduation I went on to practice and provide therapy full time.

Why did you decide to become a social worker?

I became a social worker because of the students (and adults) I worked with when I was an administrator working at a high school. I worked with both the students and adults to find resolve with family conflict, sexuailty questions, anxiety, depression, trauma, guilt, attendance, behavior concerns, and academics just to name a few. I decided to go to back to school to get a better understanding of human behavior and development and apply different theories to help others.

What type of clients are you most excited to work with?

I'm most excited to work with individuals who may not be convinced that therapy is right for them. At times I do like a challenge. However I also excited to work with people who want to better understand themselves and are ready to jump in and get the work done. Lets see where we go

What's one thing you wish all clients knew?

One thing I wish all clients knew is that there is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you. That came straight from Maya Angelou y'all. Taking that journey to tell your story can seem scary but, you also don't have to take that journey alone. It's time to heal.

Why did you choose to practice at Ashe Counseling & Coaching LLC
