I am a licensed clinical social worker and completed my clinical internship at a domestic violence crisis center. I have worked with clients ages 10 to into their 70s since 2015. Outside of work, I am involved in volunteer based community organizations such as Q Christian Fellowship, Big Brothers Big Sisters, and Black Coalition of Hernando County. My diverse experiences as a teacher, counselor, and community volunteer give me a wide variety of perspectives from which to draw to help me build strong relationships with my clients.
My style of counseling is very "you-centered." I believe that for therapy to be successful, it needs to be a partnership between the therapist and the client. I believe therapy needs to progress at the client's pace in whatever way feels most comfortable for you. This could be through just a back and forth conversation, but we could also use worksheets, journaling, or creative arts (such as poetry, painting, and so on).
I draw from a variety of therapeutic models, including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction, Narrative Therapy, and Strengths-Based Therapy, all with a trauma-informed lens.
I am a Christian and my faith and spirituality are extremely important to me. Since our faith can directly impact our mental well-being and vice versa, I believe it is important to integrate the two whenever possible. I look forward to working with you!
