Clinical Trainee in Brooklyn, NY
Supervised by Phillip Scott Tenenbaum LMHC

About My Clients

My clients are goal-driven and outcome-focused. Therefore, I will regularly check in on goal attainment. Treatment is not passive; therefore, clients are expected to put forth earnest efforts inside and outside counseling sessions to attain agreed-upon goals. Together, we will sweat the small stuff as achieving small goals leads one to address medium goals, thus creating the pathway to tackle more significant goals.

My Background and Approach

My approach toward your treatment is multifaceted, theory-driven, and rooted in evidence-based practices. While clients may share similar experiences, not all clients' experience is the same. Your treatment plan must focus on the uniqueness of you. I believe in a holistic approach that treats the "whole" person.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

As a clinician of color who grew up watching Star Trek and reading X-Men, I understand and appreciate the importance of diversity; thus, I embrace people with experiences and backgrounds different from mine. Infinite Diversity in Infinite Combinations is the belief that the things that make us all unique are the things that make life most interesting, even during the hardest of times. When working with clients, I collaborate to create a safe space for clients from all walks of life. Collaborating in this manner will give you the strength to implement your critical life-changing plans, leading to a happier and healthier you.
