Are you feeling consumed by worry and anxiety? Do you feel that some days you struggle to complete basic tasks? Are you finding that you doubt yourself and your choices? You are doing your best to survive, coping in ways you’ve learned due to your environment and past experiences. Although you realize these reactions or behaviors cause more pain, you are simply doing the best you can. Relationships around you, both personal and professional, feel the pressure and you are ready to explore change. I have years of experience supporting Mental Health and Addiction. Change is possible and healing DOES come.

Finding a therapist that is a good fit for you, especially now, can be extremely challenging! At the same time, that's exactly what I believe makes therapy effective, having a good working relationship between therapist and client. Perhaps you know what you're struggling with, but need a neutral, warm person to ask the right questions. I believe that the most important aspect of participating in therapy is that the client feels seen, understood, and supported. Whether your goals are to develop healthy relationships or work on coping skills for intense emotions, I hope to be able to be a guiding light on your own personal journey.

My ideal client would be someone who is motivated to engage in the therapy process, and is open to both feedback and support. The ideal client is also someone willing to learn and practice healthy coping skills, as well as integrate what they have learned in counseling into their everyday lives. Patients should understand that the therapy process takes time, and commitment as well as good attendance is necessary in order to see progress.

Life in general is hard. When you add financial problems and employment problems...or a history of childhood trauma...or domestic violence... or unhealthy substance use, it becomes difficult to function. Depression and anxiety appear. My thoughts about how people change is multilayered. It is important to identify all the things that are challenging you, gain some insight AND develop a path forward that involves changing your behavior to be better able to achieve the things in life that you want.

Do you, your boyfriends, girlfriends, spouses, or family members disagree about too many things, communication styles, control issues, do you argue too often? Do you struggle with low self-esteem, self-doubt, depression, and anxiety? Perhaps you, a friend or family member drink too much or have a drug problem, financial inequities, impatience, short temper, or anger management issues. Do you feel manipulated or coerced or that your wishes or your feelings are discounted and rejected by others? Are there too many upsets in your own day or do others make your days more complicated?

You are capable of feeling happier, more secure, hopeful, confident and less stressed so that you can fully enjoy your life. We know life will be very hard at times due to relationship struggles, grief and loss, work challenges, financial issues and also our world becoming more overwhelming these past few years. When we experience difficult life challenges, we are more likely to feel a spike in our anxiety and may feel sad and unable to find peace. Meeting with a trained therapist who cares about your well-being can help ease these symptoms and offer a place to begin healing.

My goal is as a therapist is to assist clients in becoming their own best advocate as they negiotiate personal life challenges. I have a special interest in mind body awareness and have incorporated meditative and relaxation strategies and biofeedback in my therapeutic work with clients from childhood through late adulthood. Additionally, I have trained ten years in Neurofeedback, a very specialized type of biofeedback, that engages the brain in changing itself. this is particularly helpful with chronic mental health issues including, but not limited to, ADD, Anxiety, Depression, Chronic Pain Syndromes, and PTSD.

I am fueled by my charge: to walk alongside Black and Brown femmes as they continue on the ever-evolving process of self-discovery, making adjustments to live in alignment with their desires and express themselves the most authentically. I believe that choosing to heal is a radical act of self-love. I am a Licensed Social Worker and in my practice, I center and prioritize the experiences and healing of Black and Brown Femmes (women, girls).

PERSONAL THERAPY... most any therapist will do if you only want to talk things out and have someone listen without judging. But if you are looking for more, my post-graduate training and advanced credentials in Rational-Emotive-Behavior Therapy (REBT) and Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT), unlike most other therapists, empowers me to teach you how to effectively manage your stress, sleep, unhealthy emotions and self-defeating behaviors--something I've successfully done for myself and thousands of clients for more than 40 years. Click WEBSITE at left to begin your journey toward the self-mastery and joy known as "Rational Living."
