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

My personality and faith has created a sensitivity to respond to the emotional needs of others. With training, this has allowed me to use this gift, to communicate genuine concern, and create a safe treatment environment. When clients feel accepted and valued, they can express thoughts and feelings without fear of judgement. This promotes developing trust early in treatment. Once trust begins, we have a firm foundation for a successful partnership for moving forward.

What do you think is the biggest barrier today for people seeking care?

I believe there remains a lack of information on the benefits of therapy, particularly in communities of color. Stigma continues to play a role and unfortunately media has at times, reinforced negative images. I believe that information will improve as more people in positions of influence, demonstrate the courage to share their stories of seeking the assistance they need. I also hope, as clients come through my office, they will be inspired to share the value of mental health care from an enriching personal experience.

What do you view as a key component of the therapeutic relationship?

Trust is central to the therapeutic relationship. If a client does not feel I can be trusted, they will have no motivation to share their life story and deepest concerns. In therapy, I recognize the strength this takes with my clients, and demonstrate respect for their choice to share it with me. Once trust is established, we can work together to build a roadmap to meaningful change and a better life.

Work History

As a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, I have been invited to come alongside many individuals seeking the Pathway to Health, Healing and Wholeness. Some were dealing with emotional pain from childhood wounds, while others were suffering from more recent traumas. These experiences can make it difficult to connect with the present in a meaningful way. Using CBT and other treatment options, for 19 years I have seen clients find their personal power and embrace life again. Challenging Negative thoughts and beliefs with facts also brought more freedom to clients dealing with anxiety and depression. This success was due to the client centered approach I take which puts clients in the drivers seat. Working in community mental health settings, family outreach programs, the Veterans Administration and private practice has demonstrated to me that where there is life, there is hope. I see myself as an encourager motivated to help others find the keys to overcoming barriers to pursuing the life they desire. I welcome the opportunity to help you activate Hope to reach your goals and live your best life.
