I approach my clinical practice from a socially conscious perspective, working always to view personal difficulties within the sociocultural context in which we live.

My goal as a therapist is to create an environment, and to foster a relationship in which my clients feel seen, heard, and safe to express their full range of emotions. Life is complicated, and much of the time people are burdened with meeting others’ expectations; in my practice I hope people feel comfortable enough to be vulnerable, and entirely themselves. Once our relationship is fostered through trust, honesty, and safety, a client and I will unpack and process negative self-beliefs, explore the importance of past and present relationships, and implement strategies to promote long term wellness.

As a Black individual or Person of Color, this may or not be your first experience with therapy. You may feel overwhelmed by stress, life transitions, and past unhealed wounds and are unsure of what to do. Or you might be curious about the roots of your distress and pain. Or you might feel burned out from the ongoing fight against social injustice. Or you might struggle to find emotional balance as you pursue a degree in higher education. If any of these describe you, know that you are not alone and there is hope.

I believe that everyone deserves a time and a place to work on their mental health, heal from painful experiences, and move towards finding more meaning in their lives and relationships. I also know that given the current pandemic, we're all struggling more than usual! I offer a warm and judgment-free zone to work on a range of issues. I believe psychotherapy works best when it is tailored to each person as a unique individual. I utilize an integrative model, drawing from Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT), relational, cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), and humanistic approaches.

I am trained in object relations theory, but my experience as a high school counselor, family therapist and lawyer informs my flexible and practical approach. While offering a deep therapy experience that leads to enduring change and growth, I am mindful that patients need strategies to manage immediate concerns and feel relief during the change process. I approach patients with a belief that their early experiences and attachments have shaped the way they see themselves, how they approach relationships and what they expect from life. I seek to help patients develop new ways of relating that lead to healthier connections to others and increased autonomy.

I collaborate with complex people who are deeply yearning to be met within their complexities. Those who find me are looking for a greater sense of direction and relief from their lived experiences with different kinds of trauma, anxiety, depression, mood instability, panic, relational injury/stress, challenging life transitions, addiction, identity confusion, and existential angst. What they want more than anything is a kind of support that will be restorative, reparative, and memorable; a space they can be unequivocally themselves without backlash.

What type of Philadelphia 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 Philadelphia?
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.
