“I pride myself on creating a safe and trusting therapeutic alliance with my clients and honor intersectional identities.”
What was your path to becoming a Licensed Clinical Social Worker?
I have always been drawn to the unique stories of others. I grew up in a Black, Caribbean household where talking about mental health was very taboo. Fortunately, I had an uncle who was a therapist. I was deeply enchanted and curious about the work he did. Through my uncle, I learned about the power of healing in connection. I like to think that becoming a therapist was my calling and I have a strong commitment to the work I do with my clients.
What should someone know about working with you?
I believe that my clients are the experts on their lives. I pride myself on creating a safe and trusting therapeutic alliance with my clients and honor intersectional identities. I believe the foundation of the therapeutic relationship informs the work we do together. I have a wealth of experience treating trauma, depression, anxiety, relationship stress, low self-esteem, and identity issues. I am trained in EMDR and am currently working toward certification. I will serve as a trusted resource in your individual journey to wellness.
How do your core values shape your approach to therapy?
One of the most integral parts of being a therapist is promoting social justice in my practice. Social justice in therapy is a multifaceted approach in which I strive to promote human development and the common good by addressing challenges related to both individual and distributive justice.
