About me

She had to quickly become an advocate for her well-being after the emergency birth of her son and now dedicates her time to being the much-needed advocate for all moms at a higher risk of complications during pregnancy and after childbirth. She founded Candlelit Therapy to serve as a safe space where Black mothers could receive better behavioral healthcare options, treatment and resources.
