How do you determine therapy goals with clients? What does that process look like?

The client determines their therapy goals. I help them to prioritize what's most important and decide on steps to achieve them. If there are difficulties or barriers to achieving the goals, we'll process that together and explore other ways to reach them. Sometimes the client will decide to change the goal altogether, and that's fine too.

What excites you most about the evolving mental health landscape?

What excites me most right now about the evolving mental health landscape is seeing more Black women and men seeking therapy. There has been an understandable stigma associated with mental health in the Black community. Mental and medical health institutions have a history of abusing Black people and excluding them from treatment that can help. My goal is to break that stigma and extend a bridge to healing that so many of us would benefit from.

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

I grew up in a Caribbean-American household where my grandparents encouraged people they knew to come, relax, and be themselves. They influenced me strongly and I want the clients I work with to feel that welcoming feeling. I am also very laid back in general and a good listener, although I will ask questions and encourage a lot of inner work.

Work History

I have a passion for working with others who want help learning how to find balance in their lives, whatever that means for the individual. Change is difficult and sometimes just thinking about it can feel overwhelming. Let’s work together step by step to learn what’s been keeping you in place and affirm your limitless capacity for change & growth. In a non-judgmental, safe, and supportive environment we’ll explore your challenges, your successes, and develop strategies together to work towards your goals. I use a combination of techniques such as motivational interviewing, person-centered, trauma-informed, and strengths-based approaches tailored to your needs. I have experience working with people who are faced with work stressors, relationship issues, and, life transitions, in addition to people who are having difficulty managing anxiety and/or depression.
