Asking for help can be hard, due to the myth that help seeking is a sign of weakness or inadequacy, and double stigma for Black or People of Color. Going to therapy is a sign of courage and self-awareness. If you have been feeling "stuck", have experienced childhood or recent trauma events, struggle with anxiety, have difficulty in relationships, or unpleasant mood changes, I can help. Through our relationship, you will gain awareness for the way life events and generational patterns have been influencing you in the world. You will also get to develop coping skills and strengthen resilience factors, to overcome invisible wounds.
Though I am competent in a variety of treatment approaches and trained in EMDR, I will collaborate with you to determine the most suitable approach for your therapy. If you are working towards clinical licensure, I am also accepting supervisees who are interested in both a relational and trauma-informed supervision model.
You do not have to "hit rock bottom" to begin therapy. Whether you are new to therapy, have benefited from therapy in the past, or have a background in mental health, give yourself permission to now include therapy as part of your healthy life plan.
