She enjoys supporting health providers, such as other counselors/therapists and medical professionals.

Dr Medley uses Solution-focused and Emotion-focused approaches with clients, with a foundation of cultural affirmation.

Message to clients

I’m a recovering perfectionist. And I thought I was doing pretty good with my journey, until I experienced an unexpected major stroke. That major life crisis was, ironically, a great opportunity to reassess what I was doing to take care of myself…physically and emotionally.

As a high-achieving Black woman who was recovering from perfectionism, turned into a Black woman who is a stroke survivor, I’m passionate about helping other high-achieving women of color to pause, to breathe, and to assess what they are doing to take care of themselves…physically and emotionally.

I’d love to support you in your journey of thriving and your journey towards making effective self-care a consistent part of your life. I support high-achieving women who want to work on themselves (as an individual client) or those who want to work together to create healthier relationships with someone they care about (as a couple or other relationship). Explore my profile or website for information about how we can work together to create your new day, new relationship, new self-identity, new sense of stability, or new happiness.

To use your insurance benefits, please inform me during your consultation so I can determine whether your plan is in-network through Headway!
