Cory has had an interest in psychology and helping others for as long as she can remember. As a result of this passion, she went on to graduate with her Bachelor of Science in Psychology from Bowie State University, then obtained her Master of Science in Clinical Psychology from Loyola University Maryland. Cory also worked as a research assistant for the University of Maryland, Baltimore, at the Maryland Psychiatric Research Center and then in the Department of Psychiatry. During her time in these roles, Cory interacted with various people from a multitude of backgrounds, utilizing empathy and cultural competency to create trusting, honest, and safe spaces. Cory is passionate about diversity and inclusion, normalizing and providing access to mental health in the Black community, removing the stigma of mental health, and dismantling the barriers to proper care. She enjoys dancing, painting and drawing, hanging out with her plant babies, cooking, and having a good time. Cory truly believes in being an accountabil-a-buddy to those who need it most, and helping them on their journeys as a guide, not a leader.
Just because no one else can heal or do your inner work for you, doesn't mean you can, should, or need to do it alone. - Lisa Olivera
