My job is to see the world through your eyes, understand as much as I can what is happening to you. I test for symptoms. We find a baseline to get an accurate measure of what you are feeling or experiencing. Once I get that, we move to the next step of deciding together which problem to work on, and we create a priority of problems to address if there is more than one. We work as a team.

My areas of focus include psychological assessment, counseling therapy with pediatric, adolescent and adult clients, and African American psychology for clients with autism spectrum disorders, ADHD, learning disabilities, blended families, and military or veteran related stressors.
Hi! In a world where so many of us regularly get the message that we are flawed, I think it is important to start by saying something that we might not hear so regularly, which is, that it is okay to be you. But if I’m being honest, being yourself is not always an easy thing to do. As a therapist, I place priority in creating a therapy environment where clients feel safe to share the most authentic versions of themselves without fear of judgement. In addition to a safe therapeutic space, my goal is to assist clients on their paths towards self-expression and self-acceptance no matter where they are in their journey.

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.

I know that it can be hard sometimes to ask for help. Are you feeling the pressure to be everything to everyone, and no one is there when you need them? Do you have feelings of not being enough, and hearing that inner critic remind you of your past? Are you tired of giving so much to everyone else and beginning to feel resentful that you are not receiving anything back? Are you feeling unappreciated, underestimated, unworthy, or unbalanced? Taking the first steps on the road to heal can be scary, I am here to support, encourage & empower you. To support you as you release the anger, release the stress and release the love.

Do you find yourself often worried about your future, your career, your love life, or what people think of you? Do you experience the same cycles repeating in your life that you would like to breakthrough and heal from? Is perfectionism, people pleasing or putting your needs and wants to the side getting in the way of living the life you desire? While navigating through our life journey we will all have challenges and lessons along our path. We are all here in this lifetime to reclaim the truest parts of ourselves. As we heal, we will also shed adopted truths that no longer serve us and connect with the most divine parts of us.

What type of La Mirada 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 or psychologist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.

How to find a therapist or counselor in La Mirada?
When looking to find a therapist, start by considering 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.
