My style includes creating a safe place that is free from judgement and biases. I like to create a space that will allow you to narrate your truth about challenges that have brought you to seek therapy. I focus on the past and the present for an appropriate duration of time to get an idea of who you are, and the possible origin of patterns of behavior. I like to collaborate with you on identifying conflicts or "unfinished business" that could be contributing to your "now" areas of concern and essentially any discord that could come up in the future. My style is strengths based, collaborative, honest, creative, humorous and solution focused. I like to promote proactivity rather than reactivity. Matching my skill set with your needs in order to collaborate on creative ways to address your challenges. I draw from Narrative Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy and Motivational Interviewing.
I am a graduate of Virginia Union University with a Bachelors degree in Criminal Justice and I later went on to receive my Master's degree in Social Work with a concentration in Mental Health from Howard University. Throughout my studies, my practicum experience consisted of working with the Maryland Truancy Court Reduction Program and Outpatient Behavioral Health Services at MedStar Washington Hospital Center. I received post-graduate, intensive training at the Immigration Evaluation Training Center in the area of extreme hardship waivers, domestic violence (VAWA) & asylum immigration evaluations in Virginia and Washington, DC.
Thereafter, I later went on to work in a variety of settings that have afforded me the opportunity to diversify my work and skill set with different populations and individual needs. This includes addiction, foster care & adoption, community support and residential treatment. My experience has afforded me the opportunity to learn from and support individuals who struggle with everyday life stressors, those that are impacted by mild, moderate, severe and chronic mental illness. My background includes adolescents, young adults, adults, and geriatrics who are struggling with mental health challenges.
In 2017 I began working in leadership at Gateway Homes, Inc. where I gained expertise with serving individuals with serious and persistent mental illness. My practice opened in 2020 and I continue to provide direct services to individuals in the community who are struggling with different social, emotional and behavioral issues that are causing discomfort. Currently, I provide virtual psychotherapy and immigration services through a secure platform to individuals who reside in Virginia and Washington, DC. I collaborate with individuals, couples, families, attorneys and interpreters to support and array of client challenges.
