RAM CIRCLE is trauma and social justice-informed lens to mental health providing work centered around developmental trauma, intergenerational trauma, self-esteem, and mood regulation. I am a licensed psychotherapist in Washington, DC, and Maryland.
Helping you deepen your relationship with yourself by walking you through the process of tending to your roots and mending pain and anxiety through embodied therapy with a trauma and social justice informed lens.
The RAM CIRCLE office is located in the state of Maryland. I provide services in DC, Maryland, and Haiti. Due to the pandemic, the practice has moved fully to telehealth with the hope of providing in-person therapy again once safe to do so. I became a psychotherapist because I wanted to help people work through their trauma; however, this desire took a welcoming turn after the birth of my son. With his birth, came to a lot of feelings that I had never worked through centered around my own history of developmental trauma. The personal work that I did was so transformative that I decided to shift my specialty and focus on helping people particularly people of color make space, mend trauma in their bodies, integrate mindfulness in order to be active in their lives in the healthiest way possible. Additionally, I am committed to cultivating a space that focuses on building the professional esteem of clinicians. The focus is on the health of our clients as well as the health of the clinicians.
We pledge: Commitment, competence, curiosity, creativity, transparency and openness. We understand that our actions impact your therapy journey. In an effort to maintain the integrity of this collaborative work, please let us know when the stated values aren’t in alignment with our practice. Our clinical team is comprised of independently licensed clinicians with a masters or doctorate degree in the mental health field. Our licenses can be verified online.
I’m Marjorie, founder, and psychotherapist at RAM CIRCLE, a method I have transformed from a personal experience to a purpose-driven mental health practice helping community members disrupt the impact of developmental and intergenerational trauma. Following the birth of my son, I came face to face with a series of trauma responses that I lived with fully unaware. In the process of nursing a newborn, I was going through another transformative process which was working through the history of trauma I had experienced growing up. It was a turning point in my life and motivated a shift in my professional route.
Mental health is my ministry. It is more than a career, it is also a way of showing up in the world. I am the mother of a little human who gives endless supplies of joy and kindness. In addition to RAM CIRCLE, I do other passionate and creative work centered around elevating the work of local artisans to create more job opportunities in Haiti–where I am from. I enjoy making journals, podcasting, and headwraps. I have also done some small-scale social justice-related work in Anse D’Hainault, Jeremie, and Casale (Haiti) and Washington, DC specifically ward 7 and 8.
I especially like to pay it forward to Black women for all they’ve contributed to me. Right now, I currently split my time between Washington, DC, and Haiti. I enjoy cooking, being silly, storytelling, dancing, traveling, playing with my little one, watching odd medical videos on YouTube, and cultivating healthy relationships.
