Profile
“During individual sessions, I focus on reframing negative thoughts, educating clients on effective coping skills, building self-confidence and self-awareness through mindfulness techniques, and changing negative patterns of behavior that are a detriment to building a positive lifestyle.”
What was your path to becoming a therapist?
For as long as I can remember, I felt the call to counseling as I always was a social being and tended to the needs of others. I was exposed early to mental health issues within my family and loved ones, which sparked my interest to study in the field. My first job ever was a therapy assistant working with autistic children. I fell in love with helping them learn new and necessary skills to improve their daily functioning. Since then, I’ve been on the straight and narrow path to becoming a mental health counselor. I studied psychology in my undergraduate career and graduated with my master’s in mental health two years later. I began working at a psychiatric clinic providing individual counseling for individuals in the mentally ill population for several years and I now own a private practice. I am humbled every day to be able to help transform lives with the strong bonds we build in therapy!
What should someone know about working with you?
I have a strong background in cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), which focuses on thought and behavior modification, but I often integrate a variety of therapeutic techniques that best fit the needs of my client. During individual sessions, I focus on reframing negative thoughts, educating clients on effective coping skills, building self-confidence and self-awareness through mindfulness techniques, and changing negative patterns of behavior that are a detriment to building a positive lifestyle. Together, we will create a comprehensive treatment plan that will assist you in meeting your personal goals. I also believe strongly in the therapeutic relationship that we will cultivate as a catalyst for change. Working as a team can ultimately provide you with the support you need to get your breakthrough and thrive in the face of challenges!
What do you do to continue learning and building competencies as a provider?
I enjoy listening to podcasts, reading, and attending workshops/trainings. I am currently training to become a certified mental health integrative medicine provider. I think it's important to incorporate physical health in my work and teach others about the role physical health plays in maintaining our mental health.
What are you most excited about within the evolving mental health landscape?
I am so excited for the black and brown communities who are actively seeking therapy in a world that once stigmatized it. I am grateful for the doors that have been open for people of color to gain access to mental health services and the information that is now out there about how to care for your mental health. I am confident that the mental health field will continue to evolve and I'm enthusiastic about being a part of it!
