I work best with people who have the drive and motivation to live a fulfilling life, but continue to find that something just doesn't click. By this, I mean that they may feel constantly hard on themselves, nervous and tense, or haunted by their past. These people know that there is something inside of them that can reach their potential, but they don't know where to start looking for it.

Do you ever feel like your mind won't stop racing? Like your worries are taking over? You find yourself "on edge" much of the time-you snap at your kids or partner, you can't focus at work, you have trouble falling asleep. Maybe you can't help feeling like you aren't good enough, or have a nagging sense of what you "should" be doing, how you "should" feel, how you "should" be. Perhaps you feel a sense of shame about who you are or things you have experienced, and this makes it hard just to get through the day. It's all so overwhelming...you just want to feel normal again, but you can't even remember what "normal" feels like.

Do you feel confused or frustrated with one or more of your relationships (including the one with yourself)? Does it seem like things used to be better and you can't figure out how they went sour? Do you feel like you'll pull your hair out trying to get others to hear you? Whether the struggle is with your relationship with yourself, a partner or spouse, a family member, or a friend, relationship snags hurt and can be difficult and messy to sort through. Maybe you wonder if things will ever be right in this relationship. You may question whether you're still valued.

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).

If you are someone who wants to engage in a journey of self improvement and feels stuck in their current life situation you are not alone. I work with people who want to live a different version of their life but may feel there is no way out. Sometimes people get knocked down along the journey of life. It is not your fault. You might need some guidance or assistance to help spark your own motivation to get back to living the life you want to live again. I believe everyone has the answer inside of them and they are the experts of themselves. I will facilitate change with you, not for you. You are stronger than you know.

What type of Albany 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 Albany?
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.
