I’ve gained knowledge and skills working with clients who experienced anxiety and mood disorders, adjustment disorder, self-harm/suicide ideation, developmental disabilities, intimate and family relational conflict, parenting, and trauma-related diagnoses. Moreover, as a brainspotting practitioner, I utilize this trauma specific treatment by effectively helping to identify points in an individual’s visual field to assist in retrieving unprocessed trauma in the subcortical brain. I have acquired knowledge and skills with diverse treatment modalities such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Motivational Interviewing (MI), Multisystemic Therapy (MST), and Womanist Therapy.
When working with clients, I view them as the “expert” of their lives and allow them to lead. In therapy, collaboration is key, we will be a team, and as your clinician, I will allow you to remain in the driver seat, while I support and assist you in the passenger seat. I love to utilize person-centered focus, which allows me to provide a safe and nonjudgemental space within sessions. Clients enjoy the space to authentically 2 be and feel however they choose to, without having to endure any judgment. I provide my clients with respect, empathy, active listening, self-determination, motivation and guidance throughout their therapeutic journey.
Their progress and meeting their goals within treatment.
