Asking for help can be hard, when help is perceived as a sign of weakness or inadequacy, especially if you identify as Black or Person of Color. Going to therapy is a sign of courage and self-awareness. If you are feeling "stuck", have experienced childhood or recent traumatic events, struggle with anxiety, have difficulty in relationships, or unpleasant mood changes, I can help. Our therapeutic relationship will help you gain awareness for life events and generational patterns that are influencing present day concerns. You will also get to develop new coping skills to strengthen your resilience, to overcome invisible wounds.
Your therapy sessions will include a relational approach that is anti-racist and trauma informed. Though I am competent in a variety of treatment approaches and trained in EMDR, I will collaborate with you to determine the most suitable approach for your therapy.
You do not have to "hit rock bottom" to begin therapy. Whether you are new to therapy, have benefited from therapy in the past, or have a background in mental health, give yourself permission to now include therapy as part of your healthy life plan.
