When I thought about how my 35th birthday would be, I never imagined we would be planning a funeral instead of a party. But I believe my papa was smiling down on me today and reminding me how blessed I am to see another year! Cheers to 35🍾🎉🎈 1 Peter 5:7 (NIV) Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you❤️

This Monday, December 2nd I unexpectedly lost my PaPa. I have no idea how I’m feeling. I think I have experienced every emotion that I am aware of in heavy rotation, plus emotions I didn’t even know existed. It’s been 72 hours and it still feels as heavy as when I got the call. If I would’ve known thanksgiving was going to be the last time I hugged you, I would’ve held you for 30 seconds longer. I would’ve kissed your forehead 5 more times. I would’ve taken 10 more pictures. I would’ve told you I loved you 1 more time. I would’ve begged you to make jokes so I could see your smile one last time. Saying goodbye to you next week will be one of the hardest things I’ve ever had to do. I wonder if I pray really hard will God hear me and erase Thursday from the week🥺 I hope I continue to make you proud. I love you more then there are stars in the sky PaPa❤️

It’s no secret that being in the mental health field can be difficult at times. It can be difficult trying to educate about mental health when people are afraid to listen. It can be difficult to work towards breaking the stigma when the stigma is historical and generational. It can be difficult to believe in others more then they believe in themselves. It can be difficult to service the athletic population when it has been instilled in them to “be tough” and “never show others/opponents your weaknesses.” It can be difficult to try to break through a male dominated sports industry as a black female therapist. BUT WHAT’S MORE DIFFICULT IS NOT PURSUING YOUR PASSION BECAUSE OF COMPLICATED BARRIERS! The goal is to bring to light mental health awareness and advocate for athletes to have more accessible/routine services available to them. And I’m at the stage of my life where I set goals and crush them!!! @teamtherapy 📸: @commonartisan #lace #lacellc #laceyourself #dopetherapist #blackmentalhealthmatters #mentalhealthawareness #mentalhealth #blackmentalhealth #socialwork #selfcare #selflove #creativecatalyst #euphoria #breakthestigma #blackgirlsdotherapy #dctherapist #dctherapy #mdtherapist #mdtherapy #dmvtherapy #sportstherapy #T.E.A.M. #TEAMtherapy #morethananathlete #womeninsports #mentalhealthmatters

Tonight @teamtherapy Was a resource table for the 3rd Annual Chicken and Waffles Community Day, which celebrates the life of Brian Davis who was murdered in 2016. Very honored to be able to start discussions around mental health in that building tonight🤗 Words can not express how much @ncgirl7 helps me when it comes to resource tables and vendor tables. I legit go into anxiety mode when she doesn’t arrive the same time as me😩 She’s a much better stress manger than me lol. There hasn’t been an event I’ve asked her to help with that she hasn’t come through...even the last minute ones❤️ #lace #lacellc #laceyourself #dopetherapist #blackmentalhealthmatters #mentalhealthawareness #mentalhealth #blackmentalhealth #socialwork #selfcare #selflove #creativecatalyst #euphoria #breakthestigma #blackgirlsdotherapy #dctherapist #dctherapy #mdtherapist #mdtherapy #dmvtherapy #sportstherapy #T.E.A.M. #TEAMtherapy #morethananathlete #womeninsports

I don’t know who needs to hear this...but I sure did🙋🏽‍♀️ Listen...it is so mentally exhausting to constantly feel like you’re working to try to change someone’s perception of you. Especially when you’ve put forth so much effort to evolve into a better person over time. On a regular basis I encounter someone who won’t let go of their version of me from college, or from our first argument, or from someone else’s perception. I’m just now realizing that it is not my responsibility to fit their version of me that they’ve made in their head/mind! My only responsibility is to be my authentic self❤️ #lace #lacellc #laceyourself #dopetherapist #blackmentalhealthmatters #mentalhealthawareness #mentalhealth #blackmentalhealth #socialwork #selfcare #selflove #creativecatalyst #euphoria #breakthestigma #blackgirlsdotherapy #dctherapist #dctherapy #mdtherapist #mdtherapy #dmvtherapy #sportstherapy #T.E.A.M. #TEAMtherapy #morethananathlete #womeninsports

When I thought about wall art for my new office space I wanted to be thoughtful about what my clients saw during their sessions. I liked how @artby_kd emphasized his heart is king collection. The heart is a strong muscle physically and emotionally. Not only does it keep us alive...it is usually where our passion, purpose, drive, love reside. It is valuable and leads a lot of what we do. I asked him to create one specifically for me. I wanted it to include colors in my office, a green heart for mental health awareness, and words that represent my office and things that I hope clients will recognize/gain for themselves. I absolutely love the finished product! Thank you Kris! @l.a.c.e._t.e.a.m._ #lace #lacellc #laceyourself #dopetherapist #blackmentalhealthmatters #mentalhealthawareness #mentalhealth #blackmentalhealth #socialwork #selfcare #selflove #creativecatalyst #euphoria #breakthestigma #blackgirlsdotherapy #dctherapist #dctherapy #mdtherapist #mdtherapy #dmvtherapy #sportstherapy #T.E.A.M. #TEAMtherapy #morethananathlete #womeninsports #mentalillnessweek
