About My Clients

Are you dealing with school drama, friend issues, or just need someone else to talk to? Is school stressing you out to the point where you're always feeling bored or anxious? With school activities being canceled or postponed, are you feeling like you're missing out or are more lonely? If so, I can offer a listening ear and help give you coping strategies. ‚Äč

My Background and Approach

My name is Kandyce and I specialize in working with adolescent, young adult, and emerging adults. Whether you're still in high school figuring it out or in the early stages of work, relationship, and setting intentions, I'd love to partner with you. I want you to thrive! Together we will look at what's holding you back, identify the origin, and create a clear path forward. It's okay if you don't know where to start... we'll figure that out together. I practice from a Rational Emotive Behavioral perspective to look at the intersection of your beliefs, feelings, and actions.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I'm a black identified therapist passionate about working with racial and ethnic minorities. Much of how we approach mental health is normed by standards of a white society. I consider culturally competent mental health work to be an act of social justice. I insist upon viewing my client's through their identities as well as the lease of how they are viewed by society. Looking at standards of beauty, cultural norms, and generational patterns I view my clients holistically. I'm also someone who believes in recognizing and better understanding the impact of racial trauma on mental health. I have a long history of volunteering and being active with suicide prevention. I have been a member of the nonprofit To Write Love On Her Arms (TWLOHA) which focuses on self harm and suicide awareness. I currently volunteer answering the national suicide prevention lifeline.
