I believe that therapy is an individual, unique, and empowered process for each client that allows them to recognize their inner strengths.
Clinical Psychologist in Los angeles, CA
work with African-American clients dealing with racism and oppressive sociopolitical systems
The approaches that I have used all throughout my training in school and since becoming a licensed psychologist have been person-centered. I strongly utilize active and reflective listening, empathy, and being present and authentic with my clients while in the therapy room.
I have worked with clients of many different cultural backgrounds (i.e., African-Americans, Hispanic-Americans, and Asian-Americans), which has allowed me to develop a strong sense of cultural awareness and sensitivity that informs my treatment with clients.
CBT is my primary theoretical orientation. I have many years of experience working with clients to help change unhealthy thought patterns.
I have many years of experience working with clients of all ages and backgrounds with depression and have helped them to develop coping skills.
I have experience working with middle-aged and older adults in skilled nursing facilities and private practice. Geropsychology, or working with older adults, is my specialization.
I have experience working with many African-American clients who have experienced racism and oppressive systems in the US.
