Vincit qui se vincit, She conquers who conquers herself.
I have a saying that I often repeat to myself and share with my clients, Vincit qui se vincit, pronounced (winkit qwi say winkit) which translated from the Latin means she conquers who conquers herself. Simply stated, a person who overcomes their shortcomings or challenges, who is able to control their emotions and subsequent behaviors has won a pivotal battle. Whether we are working to improve your self-awareness, shift your perspective of the world, or are using neuroscience and human behavior to create a unique market position for your company, we will collaboratively begin winning life's little battles.
ALLYCIN POWELL-HICKS, PHD
I'm Dr. Ally and I am a Mental Health Expert that loves using her skills in human behavior to transform people's lives as well as realign the aesthetics of their businesses.
As a kid, all I wanted was to be a neurosurgeon and between surgeries, I would design people’s homes and make their lives more beautiful (oh the limitless mind of a child). I was in awe of the complexity of neuronal function and loved watching people’s behavior transform when they were in the presence of something they found beautiful. I knew there had to be some connection. My obsession paid off because now that I’ve paired my love for all things aesthetic with a Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology something truly transformative has emerged; the ability to develop thoughtful brand identities for corporate and individual clients.
I have done some interesting things along my journey. My research on minority women, cosmetic surgery and the impact of media on body image have been presented at conferences around the world. I've also used this research to directly impact the lives of women through workshops, individual coaching, media work, and hands-on mentoring. I have been featured on a few different networks and shows including Family or Fiance on OWN, Access Hollywood Live, Love and Hip Hop Hollywood, and MTV to name a few. Check out a few videos of my appearances below if you want to get to know what I do a little more. From my perspective, mental health weaves itself throughout every creative moment of life. Let me help you clarify your life and your brand. Let's be real, we're all a brand now so let me help you DOUX you!
