Specialization/population served: I have worked with adolescent and adult clients experiencing depression, anxiety, mood disorders, identity concerns, relationship issues, substance use disorders, and a number of other life stressors.
I'm truly passionate about helping women of color, and being able to empathize with the issues that we face in our community. My particular therapy style is genuine and attentive. I believe that it takes an immense amount of courage to tell someone that you don't know about your life and struggles you're facing.
The approaches I utilize are cognitive behavioral, motivational interviewing, reality testing, dialectical behavioral, and rational emotive therapy.
I realize that life can have its challenges and some moments are better than others. During difficult or uncertain times it can help to know you're not alone and that someone is there. For me the greatest reward in being a counselor is being able to see clients overcome obstacles. I hope you will take this first step, and I look forward to working with you.
*I offer a free 20 minute consultation to discuss what services I offer, and to discuss your counseling needs, including any questions you may have.
