I approach therapy from a trauma-focused, multicultural perspective. I’ve worked with clients from all walks of life. Therefore it’s a priority to acknowledge and affirm the role a client’s cultural background plays in the therapeutic process. It is also important to recognize the affect trauma has on people. I strive to promote healing from traumatic experiences. I do this by collaborating with clients because I believe they are the true experts in themselves. My treatment approach is eclectic in nature as I utilize methods from multiple treatment modalities including CBT, DBT, person-centered and brief, solutions-focused therapy.
I specialize in trauma-focused care, paying special attention to how trauma affects our ability to function in the world. I help clients develop healthy coping skills and create a renewed sense of personal safety. I also specialize in racial and sexual minority populations including those in the African American and LGBTQ community.
The therapeutic process is often very difficult, however it can also be very rewarding for those willing to see it through.This process is a journey of self-discovery. My goal is to help clients find their strength and hope. *Please note* E-mail is the BEST way to get in touch and schedule an appointment.
