My Approach to Helping
I make it my mission to provide my clients with a compassionate and inclusive space so that they can navigate their life challenges. Whether it is overcoming a traumatic event in life, or dealing with the stress and challenges of veering toward adulthood, I’m here for my clients.
I remind myself and others that “we are more than the worst things we have done,” a quote from my favorite novel, Just Mercy.
I like to look at therapy from a macro-level, and I have vast experience treating those from underserved populations; therefore, I can relate to the unique challenges you are encountering if you too are part of that population.
I’m here for every stage of the healing process, and I will make you recognize the progress you’ve made so that you can see how you are moving forward and never feel as though you are moving backward. We will work together to unleash your inner strength. No one should feel like they should suffer through what they’ve gone through, and I’m here to make sure you know that every day, and know that you have someone you can come to in your darkest hour.
More Info About My Practice
I'm a social worker trained to identify ethical issues stemming from technology deployments. I analyze the potential impact of those issues through research. For example, I may ask myself and research how technology has impacted vulnerable populations – the populations I serve specifically.
I also look at how innovation can serve as a therapeutic catalyst to offer transformative change and also innovate how others in social work just like myself can provide new services that fit with “today,” rather than focus solely on the techniques of yesterday.
We are in a completely different world than we were ten years ago – even five years ago. So much has changed, and as a mental health provider, I know the importance of recognizing those changes and learning to adapt to them and even prepare or plan for the changes to come, so that my techniques never grow old.
I want to make sure that the healing techniques I deploy will reach my ideal client and help them today, but also provide them with coping mechanisms that will apply in the world years from now.
As I see it, if you are unwilling to research and find change, it will be impossible for anyone to move forward.
