Announcement icon I am seeing clients via telehealth service only in order to care for the safety and wellbeing of myself and the clients.
I work with clients at my office in Berkeley near the Ashby Bart Station. I prefer to work with a client who will come to sessions even when it is challenging to do so and allow the therapy relationship to open up space for safe exploration of the realities of life, ways to cope with reality, and improve spiritual and mental strength. Therefore, my client would demonstrate commitment to the therapy relationship, whether it is for brief therapy or long-term work, by doing the work necessary to understand the self and make necessary life decisions in order to maximize the availability of life energy.
I can work with clients from a spiritual foundation and collaborate with them to find internal and external solutions and resources to issues. Also I support clients who might be suffering from attachment problems, abuse, boundary, & self-worth issues and their impact on developing trusting relationships with God, self, and others.
As a Christian, middle-aged, African American woman, I bring my life experience of survival, trauma, and victory to the sessions with clients with compassion and honor for their own life experience while gently opening up space for self-reflection and healing. In my life and practice, vulnerability is an asset and not a liability.
