I currently work with Black , African American and other BIPOC adults, many who identify as LGBTQ+ and/or are engaged in nontraditional relationships, providing support with managing symptoms of anxiety, depression, stress, managing transition into adulthood (and college), and with improving challenging relationships.
My clients are often having difficulty with managing experiences of abuse/neglect, trauma and lack of access to effective social support systems. These challenges often manifest as difficulty managing emotions, declining grades, difficulty adjusting to new environments, difficulty maintaining relationships that are important to them and with developing new relationships, as influenced by regression in social/emotional development that may complicate their transition into and through adulthood.

I became a Marriage and Family Therapist because I enjoy processing with individuals and listening to personal journeys to find a resolution. I was a High School performance art major and find this skill set benefical in providing supports through visual cues using various therapeutic approaches and modalities. I specialize in working with children and families in child welfare. I enjoy working with young children and teens as these are challenging developmental years, trauma and distress from systemic and familial patterns of behaviors, coupled with low parenting, coping, decision-making and problem-solving skills.

All problems have more than one solution, and solutions are not one-size-fits-all. My approach to helping a person find the right solution to a mental, emotional, or behavior problem is to first take the time to identify the problem, and then to understand the unique ways that the problem is affecting the person's functioning and relationships. A solution can only be effective if it's practical and consistent with the big picture of a person's life - it has to fit who you are and what you can do, otherwise it just becomes another problem.

Have you been looking for resources for your healing, trying several counselors and other therapeutic techniques? Do you find yourself perpetually “stuck” in unhealthy relationships? Do you carry tension in your body that never entirely leaves? Chronic stress and unresolved trauma can be emotionally and physically painful, becoming a cunning toxin that seeps into every aspect of your life. It is easily identifiable in familiar ways, like high blood pressure. But another danger is in its hidden damage: loss of self, difficult relationships, and an ever-present feeling that everything could collapse at any minute.

My passion is rooted in working with youth and adults who may find themselves faced with life challenges of depression, anxiety, and trauma, as well as cultural specific barriers faced in the BIPOC community. Although my primary way of helping others address these hardships is through a cognitive and behavioral approach, I believe integrating techniques catered to the individual is optimal for change. Additionally, I believe our mental health is interconnected with our physical and spiritual well-being. Therefore, my focus is to help my clients align those elements for improved overall health.

What type of Tallahassee 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 Tallahassee?
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.
