I utilize Cognitive Behavioral Therapy ( CBT ) and Psychoanalytic strategies.
I went into this field because I noticed the lack of representation within the Mental health community as it pertains to the Black community. I feel our community (and POCs) could benefit from culturally competent counseling that centers their individual experience and identities. Generational trauma and systemic racism have severely impacted the lived Black experience. Stress levels that are associated with being Black in America, can be linked to health disparities. Lack of representation, mistreatment, lack of knowledge, and misinformation of mental health within the Black community is enough to want to contribute to the change.

My style is CBT , with flexibility based on the best approach to meet your needs.
I'm not just another therapist! We will explore what it is that's stopping you from feeling empowered and acting on that. This may include working through relationships, learning to communicate and building your self esteem. You won't waste your time. You'll be challenged about thoughts and behaviors that haven't been working until now. I know you don't just want another therapist. As long as you invest, you will see results; both long and short term. It's not just the session where you will be doing the work. You'll have tools and skills to practice in between so it's continuous all week.

My therapeutic approach cultivates a space that empowers clients' voices by encouraging collaboration and feedback throughout the therapeutic process. Using empathy and compassion allows clients to be themselves and feel understood as they process past experiences and reflect on challenges. To facilitate this process, I use a trauma-informed model along with psychodynamic and cognitive behavioral therapy to support clients in their journey.

My approach combines cognitive -behavioral, relational, psychodynamic and mindfulness methodologies.
This has been a particularly difficult few years. Even as we are trying to do our best day to day, we may still need extra support. Therapy is a safe space where we can identify, examine, and start to shift our thoughts, feelings, and patterns in order to create more joy and well-being. As a social worker, I believe that life challenges typically do not begin within people, but are often a mismatch between strengths, our environments, and the things we've experienced in the past. My goal is to help sort things out and start to recognize and shift patterns that cause us pain.

I'm trained in evidenced-based practices like Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavior Therapy and Seeking Safety.
Unprocessed childhood neglect, abuse, witnessing of traumatic events or recent adult interpersonal violence can weigh on us heavily. To reconnect with our natural potential and remember that our ancestors not only passed their trauma on to us but also their victory, I bring a culturally aware approach that incorporates the intersection of trans-generational trauma, gender, and spirituality to healing the issues that cause us anxiety, pain, discomfort and make it difficult to achieve our goal or feel at peace.

I utilize skills from CBT , ACT, mindfulness and trauma background to help my clients gain insight to repeated thought and behavioral patterns and understand where they come from and how to make genuine changes to them.
It can be difficult to manage the pressures of being an adult trying navigate the world; to determine the next career move, whether your relationship is going where you need it to, or if you are on the path you imagined for yourself. These big and beautiful questions can create feelings of anxiety, depression, low self esteem, dread and even feelings of panic. You want to find a way to understand these repeated patterns of feeling "stuck" or feeling "not enough", while understanding what it is you truly want and who you truly are. I can help. My clients are motivated to explore their understanding of self and the world around them.

I treat individuals, couples and families utilizing intentional, holistic, cognitive and neuroscience based therapeutic strategies to support and help clients.
I am particularly interested in disrupting maladaptive family cycles and patterns and understand that breaking free of these cycles — rooted in everything from trauma and systemic oppression to the demands of navigating the modern world and family dynamics — is both deeply inspiring and also feasible. Bearing witness to this transformative change in my client’s lives is one of my greatest honors.

Cognitive Behavioral (CBT) Therapists

How does cognitive behavioral therapy work?

Cognitive behavioral therapy works by exploring how your thoughts affect your emotions and experiences. CBT helps you identify distortions in your thinking. For example, you may tend to jump to the worst case scenario (catastrophizing) or think in extremes (all-or-nothing thinking). A therapist can teach you how to push back against those thoughts to ultimately change your feelings and behavior for the better. They can also provide coping skills to better deal with stressors and challenges.

When do I know to seek treatment with cognitive behavioral therapy?

It’s reasonable to consider cognitive behavioral therapy if you struggle to manage difficult emotions or behaviors to such an extent that you are not getting the most out of life on a day-to-day basis. If you want a shorter term, concrete, skills-based approach, CBT is a great option. (By contrast, other types of therapy may devote more time to exploring your past and its effects.) The decision to seek CBT also depends on the condition you’re treating; CBT is an effective treatment for anxiety, depression, trauma, and many other disorders.

How can I find a cognitive behavioral therapist for someone else?

To find a cognitive behavioral therapist for someone else, you may want to begin by discussing the person’s problem, researching cognitive behavioral therapy, and assessing whether the approach is the right fit. You could then reach out to a few cognitive behavioral therapists in this directory, explain the scenario, have a consultation with those available, and determine who could be a good match.

Why is CBT such a popular form of therapy?

CBT has become a popular form of therapy because it is effective and accessible. Robust research has demonstrated that CBT is an effective treatment for many mental health conditions. And CBT can be learned in relatively few sessions, which means that many people can engage in the process, afford it, and see results quickly. It involves learning concrete skills such as disputing unhelpful thoughts; these skills can also be taught and spread widely.
