Profile
“I am sure to be collaborative, warm, and open with my clients.”
What was your path to becoming a therapist?
Since high school, I have wanted to be a therapist after deciding to understand my relationships better. That decision was cemented for me in college when I experienced the loss of a close family member and went to therapy for the first time. My first experience in therapy was not pleasant. The therapist was very formal and distant; I did not return after my first session. I felt I had to explain my ethnicity and cultural views for him to understand my experience adequately. I try to give my clients the experience that I didn't have in my first therapy experience. I am sure to be collaborative, warm, and open with my clients. I think it's most important to be authentic in my sessions.
What should someone know about working with you?
I enjoy working with women experiencing anxiety or past trauma. I also enjoy helping people with life transitions and those with self-esteem issues. I don't typically assign homework (as in worksheets), but I do invite my clients to practice the skills they've learned within the sessions. Our sessions are collaborative and tailored to the client's specific needs.
What are you most excited about within the evolving mental health landscape?
I am most excited about how seeking mental health care is openly discussed and accepted within the BIPOC community. I also like how the emergence of telehealth sessions has made therapy more accessible for people who may not otherwise seek treatment. In addition, it has allowed me to be available to more people across a larger geographic area.
