What was your path to becoming a therapist? What inspired you to choose this profession?

My path to becoming a therapist was simply, trial and error, figuring out through my life and work history- what does this add up to for me? I was born in Cleveland, OH and moved to Columbus, OH at 11 years old. My mom raised both me and my older sister as a single parent and I watched her work it out in every sense. I wanted for nothing and that was made possible by her daily sacrifice and hard work, supported by the prayers of my grandmother. I remember in my last year of undergraduate school I was torn between pursuing my Masters in psychology and venturing into the MFT field. I reflected on my grandmother, Ernestine, and the astounding legacy she left for all of my family members. That was inspiration! She was raised in Birmingham, AL and relocated to Cleveland, OH with my great grandmother. Her life was very hard in many aspects but she left a big mark of change, value and transparency on my heart. That is what I carry into my sessions and everyday life. Learning to advocate for positive family/social relationships and increased awareness of balanced mental health needs are vital. The field of MFT provided me a base in which to learn from a systemic perspective and left room for me to discover a rhythm that is all my own.

What would be important for someone to know about working with you?

I am introverted but I love this field! If you decide to work with me I am very laid back and enjoy real dialogue. I will never pretend to have all the answers but we will reach goals together. The emotional cost is embracing transparency. Life is chaotic, confusing, and beautiful all at the same time.

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

My base of treatment is client-centered. I use psychological assessments to develop a treatment plan, share the plan with the client(s), and we then proceed to work on goals. Goals are achieved with in-session dialogue, homework/outside of sessions tasks, in addition to personal and clinical accountability. I ask for feedback from clients as a clinician, in addition to confronting their needs head on. The timeframe for therapy could be at least 3 months to a few years. Every client is different and I formulate treatment to that specific client(s).
