My Approach to Helping
Do you often find yourself looking at life from a pessimistic viewpoint?
Do you find yourself regularly grappling with feelings of unease, being swamped, or even feeling adrift? Are you struggling with questions about who you are, dealing with issues related to substance use, or confronting past traumas that stonewall your potential?
It's important to understand that these emotions can be overwhelming, and I want to assure you that you\'re not alone.
I'm Jennifer, and I’d be glad to help you.
More Info About My Practice
Grounded in empathy, comprehension, and a profound commitment to assisting underserved communities, black people, and people of color in overcoming their challenges and distressing issues, my approach to therapy rejects the notion of a one-size-fits-all process. Instead, it emphasizes a personalized journey that we embark on together, addressing specific needs and goals with a nuanced understanding and respect for diverse values and beliefs.
In addition to my background in the private and public sectors, I bring a strong emphasis on adaptation to my therapeutic approach. My focus has been on establishing safe and supportive spaces where clients feel heard and accepted. I am adept at providing practical tools through a combination of techniques, including cognitive-behavioral therapy, solution-focused motivational interviewing, and a strength-based approach. Specializing in trauma-informed care, I currently serve as a licensed clinical therapist for adults dealing with challenges in mental health and substance use.
My Role as a Therapist
I am here to accompany you on this journey, providing you with the tools to build a brighter future with improved well-being. Let's move towards healing together. I eagerly anticipate our journey together.
My Therapy Focus
My approach is culturally sensitive, and I make an effort to understand and respect the unique background that each client brings to our sessions. Socialization plays a crucial role in my therapeutic approach. Typically, our sessions begin with a series of questions that allow me to gain a general overview of my patients' profiles.
I am dedicated to creating a supportive and affirming environment for Black individuals and people of color, aiding them in overcoming trauma and mental health issues by fostering a therapeutic bond.
