About My Clients
Does the idea of seeing a therapist make you feel crazy ? Do you fear being misunderstood and having some one analyzing and judging every word? Have you refused opening up to others because that's just not what we do? I want you to have space to process your feelings with a skilled professional, who understands what it's like to be a member of a marginalized group(s) in society. I give you permission to be your authentic self, think of our meeting as a therapeutic conversation.
My Background and Approach
I have provided a number of speciality therapeutic services including working with People of Color, Women, and Members of the LGBTQIA+ community. My approach to therapy is relaxed, I am patient and prefer to consider my client's comfort level when tailoring my approach. I am also flexible in my approach depending on the client's needs. As a LMFT and LPC, I implement a range of practical and evidenced based methods such as CBT, Solution Focused Brief Therapy, and IFS to name a few.
My Personal Beliefs and Interests
I understand the direct and indirect impact of being a member of a marginalized group in today's society and the importance of having culturally aware professionals serve, represent, and advocate for our communities. I want to normalize seeking mental health services. My mission is to challenge the stigma associated with mental health by increasing awareness within the Black community.
