My Approach to Helping
I earned my doctorate degree in Clinical Psychology from Jackson State University and my Master of Science degree in Forensic Psychology from Prairie View A&M University. My area of expertise is treatment of symptoms manifesting from traumatic experiences, specifically life-threatening events, sexual assaults, physical violence and combat trauma. I have over a decade of experience evaluating and treating individuals in outpatient clinics, residential facilities and institutional settings.
Healing and recovery from traumatic experiences are essential goals in my treatment philosophy. My research and clinical interests include PTSD and trauma related disorders in sexual assault survivors, the psychological dynamics of criminal victimization and perpetration, and the effects of gender socialization and inequality on the mental health of African American women.
Currently I focus exclusively on mental health treatment. I do not provide disability related services, such as evaluation and documentation to support requests for leave or accommodations for work or school, FMLA, and letters for emotional support animals (ESA).
