Hello, I’m MC! I hold certifications in Brainspotting, Resilience Training, Embracing Equity (DEI), ACEs (Adverse Childhood Experiences), and (REI) Racial Equity Institute. Currently in the process of completing the FSU-Professional Certification in Trauma & Resilience. Additionally, I train and implement resilience training with the non-profit, Resources for Resilience (RFR). This training is heavily influenced by somatic tools and an understanding of the impact of trauma on the body and mind. My goal is to connect in hopes of creating a brave space, as we walk together toward healing, balance, and peace. You have the right to feel good in your mind and body. So, It will be my pleasure to go on this journey with you. Let's go!

“Because MC's work, I am able to reevaluate some of my choices! I have the freedom to express myself without feeling judged or less than. Oh! She gives homework. Do not let that scare you from seeking therapy! It's necessary for accountability! ”

“As an African-American, it's critical to wrestle with trauma and the issues which we have held inside for decades and generations! I find my time with MC Counseling & Consulting to be invaluable! After each session, I feel a sense of freedom, you can feel too!”
