I am excited to potentially be the therapist you are looking for because I have a passion for helping others reach their short and long-term goals. I became a therapist because I saw how important mental health was and the impact it had in the community I lived in as a child. I believe the human mind is like a flower. If you nurture it, it will grow. My therapy model is to look at any obstacles from a strength-based perspective and to build on those attributes. Ultimately, the client is the driver and I am the passenger to assist with the navigation to reach the destination.

Do you ever wonder what your “purpose” is in life? Do you have moments where you feel sad, anxious, scared of change or just dealing with real life stressors? Well, let me help you! I like to work at your pace in order to provide the necessary tools to manage your symptoms or concerns. That can look like learning healthy coping skills and/or habits, processing thoughts and feelings and how they affect ones behaviors, journaling, homework assignments or just simply talking things out. Therapy is not a one-size fits all as I work from a client-centered perspective.

My work is performed with cultural intentionality so as to help clients develop insight/self-awareness that helps them to better navigate transitional/life difficulties.

When life presents challenges, even the most robust and resourceful individuals can become overwhelmed, feel insecure, alone and lost. Psychological consulting can create an environment where acceptance is experienced, healthy coping strategies are developed and resilience is cultivated. Your decision to explore your life through supportive psychotherapy can promote the healing of past emotional injuries and assist with the difficulties of current stressors.

Hello beautiful people. My most treasured skill as a therapist but most importantly as a human is the ability to connect and relate with almost any one no matter your race, gender, culture, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, or age. I am learning in practice and in life that no matter how old, young, accomplished or established we become there will always be a natural human yearning we carry to feel like we belong and that we matter to others.

I am an African American/Black woman. I believe that representation matters in mental health services, especially as stigmas around mental health are being addressed as Black people/people of color are seeking therapy more often in today’s society. I am an Associate Clinical Social Work and received my Master of Social Work degree from Simmons University. My goal when working with my clients is to help you (the client and/or your family) learn how to better manage the symptoms and behaviors you experience while developing and maintaining positive coping skills. I am passionate about helping young women and young adults.

Hello and welcome. I know this is hard. It is always difficult for a proud person to seek help. It is much more harmful to not reach out, I commend you. Human beings are social animals, we need and desire the comfort of one another. How we meet those needs can be complex. My job as your therapist is to assist you in becoming the best person you can be. I provide individual, relationship, and family therapy. I have a humanistic approach, allowing you to be you. I accept you as you are. Therapy is not to change the person it is to change the way the person perceives themselves.

Therapy is ... uncomfortable, intimidating, and nerve-wrecking. It can also be healing, supportive, and eye opening. Come experience it all. Together we will explore challenges, uncover strengths, and learn new skills. If you've decided to make a change but don't know where to start or perhaps, you're feeling stuck, anxious, confused or lonely, therapy can be a place to explore those feelings, gain insight & move towards the life you really want. While engaging in this transformational process, I want therapy to feel like the opposite of a doctor's visit! Here we can laugh, yell, and cry, all emotions are accepted and so are you.

I am passionate about guiding clients on their journey to be their better self. I utilize a person-centered, trauma informed, and empowerment approach when working with clients. I believe therapy is a tool that should be afforded to all individuals, and it is important for clients to have a therapist who looks like them and/or is understanding of their cultural experiences. As a Black clinician that identifies as a cisgender woman, I prioritize working with Black clients in general and Black women and LGBTQI+ persons in particular.

What type of Compton mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.
How to find a therapist in Compton?
When looking to find a therapist, it is certainly important to consider training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Understanding cost and insurance coverage is an important concern for many people. With some basic research and conversations with prospective therapists, you should be able to have a good understanding of the best way to afford therapy.
