Description

I am a compassionate, empathetic, and non-judgmental counselor with experience working with adolescents and adults. I have experiencae working with adolescents and adults in various settings including inpatient, partial hospitalization, and intensive outpatient therapy. I believe that while we cannot control every aspect of the world around us, we can take control of how we interpret and deal with things in our environment. I am passionate about working with adults and teens to help them embrace and value themselves, and navigate life’s transitions and adversities. I strive to create a safe therapeutic environment to decrease the stigma of mental illness in the Black community and to normalize conversations about mental through honest and empathic therapy process.

In my approach, I believe in focusing on the client's needs and finding out what has been working, and what has not. I enjoy helping clients increase their knowledge and awareness of ineffective patterns and replacing them by implementing more positive patterns in their routines. I strive to provide a safe environment enabling growth and self-confidence. I aim to be a guide while simultaneously empowering her clients during the therapeutic process. I utilize Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) techniques, but have an eclectic approach overall. I believe it is important to be multifaceted since therapy is not one-size-fits-all, so therapy will be an assimilation of different techniques that are catered to client needs.

I earned her B.S. from Southern University A&M College in Business Management and M.S. in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from the University of North Texas at Dallas. I am currently an LPC-A Associate( Supervised by Marshia Allen, LPC-S, RPT). Away from counseling, I enjoys spending time with family and friends, baking/cooking, art, and vinyl record collecting.

I counsel adolescents and adults from diverse cultural and socioeconomic backgrounds experiencing issues such as anxiety, depression, stress, grief, substance abuse, bipolar disorder, eating disorders, coping skills, racial identity, spirituality, mood disorders, women’s issues, peer relationships, life transitions and others.
