In what ways does your personality influence your approach to therapy?

My personality influences my approach by demonstrating my intentionality in relationship building. I like details and I provide clients with a space to share & process the details (from the mundane to the significant) which creates an atmosphere of feeling seen, known, and loved.

Education

University of Miami, Doctorate of Philosophy, Counseling Psychology, 2019

Counseling psychologists are trained as researchers, scholars, and clinicians to pursue multiple paths. The values of our field highlight the importance of mental health and the intersections of justice and equity with regard to access to mental health resources including care/treatment. I have experience hospitals, community centers, residential treatment centers, and my favorite, college counseling centers. My dissertation focused on Black American Women's Experiences of Race-Based Traumatic Stress and the impact on our psychological & physical well-being. My dissertation along with other work is available open access.

Work History

Feeling overwhelmed by daily tasks? Tackling a relationship challenge? Curious about who you are and why you do the things you do? Counseling is a place to consider how life could look different for the better. I’m a relational therapist who invites clients to explore, practice, and refine their relational style to improve their well-being. My insight-oriented approach helps clients identify patterns across life domains impacting their present day-to-day. From that, client’s are empowered to choose: to work toward behavior change, deepen their understanding of pattern development, or both. I specialize in women’s wellness, with an emphasis on Black American women and their experiences of racial stress. I am accepting clients of all racial/ethnic backgrounds and gender identities at this time. I don’t promise to know everything, but I can be committed to walking it out with you. No matter how stretched you feel (or might be), I believe you have “enough for today.”
