You are ready for a change. You want to say goodbye to self-isolation, stagnation, pretending, and suffering in silence and say Hello to healing, purpose, inner peace, and assurance. In our work together, you will begin to feel more confident and be free to be you, unapologetically. You will learn what it means to have the relief of understanding who you are and where you want to be in life. When my clients start therapy with me, they are exhausted, unable to find the motivation to do the things they normally do. They even struggle to get out of bed. They come to me because they are tired of putting on a facade just to get through the day, but they don’t want to bother anyone else. Instead they avoid people and the things they know they need to do because they Just. Can’t.
I specialize in working with Black women and women of color who are disappointed that their self-imposed goals have not happened and they feel worse when they see their friends having the life they want. They feel like a failure and it is weighing them down. You may not have heard this as a child, but your worth isn’t determined by these external factors and expectations of others. When you realize who you are, you can be more in control of how you show up in the world.
My approach to therapy is unique in that I help you lighten the load. With an abundance of care and attention, we will unpack the burdens of childhood traumas and release the pressures of who you are supposed to be. In therapy with me, you will learn new skills and develop further insights into who you are and/or who you are becoming. Being you does not have to be a struggle. I can support you in understanding how your childhood traumas have created barriers to being your truest self. I can help you relieve the pressures of who you are “supposed to be” by embracing who you are. Together we will create a plan to get you from where you are to where you want to be. Life can be easier.
I utilize an integrated approach to treatment, primarily using Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Solution-Focused, and Person-Centered Therapy. This allows you to explore your thoughts, feelings, and behaviors and change your perspective and thought processes. You can also solve your concerns that have tangible solutions. While all of this is occurring, you are being affirmed in who you are and your journey.
If you’re ready to learn new ways to show up in the world, I am ready to support you in experiencing life in a new way.
