In today’s society, there is such a negative stigma attached to seeking mental health support. It seems that there is a general assumption that people should always be able to handle whatever life throws at them, and that there is something wrong with seeking help with coping. This negative stigma is exacerbated, particularly in the Black community, by the low numbers of African American therapists. It is my goal and responsibility to normalize seeking mental health support, and to help make counseling feel accessible to everyone.
I have experience providing individual, relationship, and family therapy. I specialize in working with people of all ages who have experienced trauma. I am clinically trained in EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing) and I am currently completing Play Therapy Certification. I have also completed Level 1 & 2 Training in Gottman Method Therapy.
Trauma is defined as a distressing experience and, believe it or not, everyone experiences trauma in their lifetime. Trauma is common and is uniquely defined by the person who experiences it. I’d be honored to partner with you in processing what you’ve experienced in a safe and judgment-free space.
