About My Clients

You may find that you think too much, hold yourself to impossible standards and you struggle with finding balance. You overwork and sometimes you lose track of your own needs. If you’re still reading, know that you are not alone. I’ve helped many clients who have felt this way. Hard-working, caring, and motivated individuals. They’ve worked hard to make the world a better place, but in the process their own needs and desires have slipped through the cracks.

My Background and Approach

I use a variety of techniques in treatment including cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), interpersonal, mindfulness, breathing, brainspotting, and relaxation exercises. Generally, I help clients set their own goals, evaluate their strengths and explore how the past is impacting the present. As treatment continues, we explore the thoughts, behaviors, and emotions that are keeping you stuck and think about how to help you get unstuck. As a Black psychologist, I work hard to tailor my treatment approach to balance the use of research based approaches with understanding of the complexities that come with having a diverse background. My current and past clientele are diverse in terms of ethnicity, sexual orientation, generational status, religious views, and financial background.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

The capacity for change is within us all. I believe in the connectedness of the mind, body, and soul. I regularly integrate what I’ve learned about physical health, mental health, and nutrition into my own life as well as the lives of my clients.
