My Approach to Helping
I am a certified clinical Trauma Professional with a practice that is centered on helping people overcame traumatic experiences( PTSD,sexual abuse,grief loss from childhood and adulthood. I utilize Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy(TF-CBT),Narrative Exposure Therapy (NET),Mindfulness,Nurtured Heart approach,etc. My practice recognizes that each client is unique, and that treatment needs to be individualize. Therefore I work with each client to identify a treatment approach that is most appropriate to the presenting issues.
My work as a Therapist is influenced by my education, training and life experiences. I experienced several civil wars growing up in Africa and immigrated to the united states as refugee. This experience fostered my interested in working with other people who have experienced traumatic experiences. My therapeutic method is person-centered and strength based.
