“I help my clients look at their life and situations from a fresh perspective and force them to ask themselves the hard questions.”
What was your path to becoming a therapist?
I got into therapy because I have always had amazing mentors and therapists who have helped me get through some tough times. Having those people made me want to be that person for others. I have been through a lot of the problems that my clients are facing. The ones that I haven’t been through, I have watched my friends deal with. Particularly in my relationships, I have had many of the challenges that my clients experience. Through working with other couples, I found my love for couples therapy during difficult times. By helping other couples make their relationships better, I was able to help my own. Coming from a Caribbean background and having friends from all walks of life, I could see these issues from many perspectives.
What should someone know about working with you?
I am honest and to the point. I help my clients look at their life and situations from a fresh perspective and force them to ask themselves the hard questions. I am very easy to talk to and I care more about your transformation as an individual/couple than about making money from a million sessions.
What do you do to continue learning and building competencies as a provider?
I am always looking for ways to keep up to date on current best practices. Through participating in continuing education courses, workshops, seminars, and specialized skills training, I work on enhancing the skills I have as well as adding new ones. In addition, I believe expanding my network through collaborating with other providers is key to helping my clients. If you choose me as a therapist and we are not a good fit, I will do my best to provide you with a referral for someone who is right for you.
