Life in today's world is challenging. There are times when it can feel lonely and overwhelming. With the help of a good therapist, however, these times can become opportunities to find healthier ways of coping and a deeper understanding of who we are. Mutual respect, empathy and a sense of trust are key ingredients in this process. As those begin to deepen, one can begin to explore past relationships and hurts that may have led to ways of thinking and feeling that keep us stuck in old patterns of behavior. Understanding these patterns creates awareness and the ability to make healthier choices.

I love to work with clients who struggle with anxiety, depression, substance use disorders, low self esteem/self compassion, and histories of trauma. I don't believe you need to “find your voice.” Instead, let's teach you how to use your voice so others will listen. I believe in therapy, and its benefits. I want to help you see therapy in a whole new light. Let's get you feeling better and living well.

I love working with clients that are dealing with challenges, and assist them in gaining the tools they need to increase their ability to live a sustainable life. Growing up in an area filled with poverty, I developed a personal understanding of what it’s like to go without due to lack of basic needs. As a Black woman, I have also seen a lot of racial injustice as well as the impact of unaddressed mental health challenges due to limited resources and access to care.As a result of my lived experiences, I refuse to remain silent and I have a desire to support those who are normally looked over and forgotten about.

Does it feel like your brain, behaviors, and emotions work independently of each other? Do you avoid conflict, your internal self, and deeper connection with friends and partners? Are you anxious in relationships and never quite feel good enough or feel a void that can’t be filled? Do you use disordered eating or other behaviors as a way to cope? Are you overwhelmed with thoughts of body, shape, weight, and food? Has an eating disorder (ED) become your full-time job, consuming 70% of your waking hours? Are you ready to fire ED and experience a more fulfilling way to live?

I work with clients wanting to heal from all kinds of painful experiences and challenges in their lives. Often what brings someone into therapy, their current struggles, are symptoms of an underlying unresolved experience which has thrown life out of balance. Anxiety and depression, for example, frequently are a pattern of being stuck in a state of imbalance, following a significant loss, heartbreak or trauma. The goal of therapy is to restore the natural integrity and balance within clients, empowering them to lead creative and fulfilling lives.

We are all many different things. We have many different feelings. We have many different issues. And we address them (or not) in different ways. We are a handful, and sometimes we need someone else to help figure things out. Human beings have a great capacity for growth and change, and in working together we can find the best version of yourself to be more authentic, happy, peaceful and inspired. My approach is simple: get personal. With an eclectic academic and professional background, I am committed to helping people though a method specific to their needs.

People come to therapy for all sorts of reasons, but everyone is feeling emotional pain. If you are feeling this way, know you are not alone. Please know this pain is not permanent; there is help. It is not unusual to feel nervous coming to therapy the first time. There is a belief the therapist will judge them, which creates fear and uncertainty. Please know you will not be judged, but listened to with understanding and empathy.

Coping Skills Therapists
With coping skills or coping mechanisms, we learn to overcome issues like stress, depression, anger or anxiety.

Pro-active coping involves dealing with a problem by using constructive coping activities such as planning, confrontation, self-control and restraint. Overuse of coping mechanisms, like avoiding problems or working obsessively, can exasperate the weakness.

Emotion based coping skills reduce symptoms by addressing our feelings e.g. discussing the issues, distraction, relaxation, reframing or humor can all help. But negative coping mechanisms, which tend to be impulsive, like denial, projection, rationalization, repression or wishful thinking can make the underlying problem worse.

Some coping methods are more like bad habits than constructive life skills e.g. drinking and drugs. Other examples might include skin biting, nail biting or hair pulling (trichotillomania).
