My Approach to Helping

My former principal once described me as a “natural born” teacher. But I like to think of myself as a “natural born” student.

Over the years, I have grown to love the process of examining underlying causalities that often inflict an individual’s mental health and learning how to apply therapeutic principles to assist with healing deficits and improving functioning. My expertise lies in the areas of working with individuals with severe and persistent mental illness (may be transitioning from acute psychiatric hospitalization), substance abuse, Depression, Anxiety, PTSD, and at-risk youth. My overall goal is to assist individuals within these populations with maximizing their ability to live, socia-ize, learn, and work in communities of their choice.

Dr. Moton has helped me through some big conflicts in my life. Our chats are always very rewarding even if I have nothing specific to talk about. She challenges me to approach situations in a healthy way by asking important questions. It always clears my mind.

In exactly 3 months I can say I am in a much better place mentally than in a long time. I had been lost, unmotivated, and hopeless.
Dr. Moton is a great listener, and will ask the right questions at the right time.

Groups I Work With

    I have a proven track record in working with individ-uals with Depression (suicidal ideation and or at-tempts), Anxiety as well as Severe and Persistent Mental Illness. I am committed to working with indi-viduals within these populations, primarily because many have a high level of acuity, which demands an intense services and treatment due to the need of various levels of social and health supports. I under-stand that individuals who struggle with mental ill-ness are a heterogeneous group of people whose en-vironmental circumstances, mental, physical, and cognitive health impairments may lead to a deteriora-tion in their ability to function in various life do-mains. This speaks to the necessity of my engaging in clinical practices that adheres to the fidelity of treatment modalities that are influenced by both eco-logical as well as person centered theoretical princi-ples. Because of this, I have invested in the develop-ment of therapeutic strategies and techniques to as-sist with meeting the needs of individuals within this population.

    As a clinician, I believe that recovery from mental illness or decreasemanagement of symptom impairments is likely if patients receive evidence-based treatments in line with NICE guidance. CBT involves psychoeduca-tion, which relies on my ability as a practitioner to ex-plain how it works to patients. It is a here-and-now, goal-focused, collaborative, evidence-based theory and thera-py. Therapy is time-limited, structured and based on a skills-based learning approach. It is a model where thoughts are central; thoughts cause feelings, distorted thoughts cause psychological distress, therapy can only be successful through changing thoughts.

    The process of therapy is to help patients identify prob-lems and the thoughts that cause them, and then to help them change their thoughts through thought-challenging and behavioral experiments. I understand that Cognitive Restructuring varies therefore it necessitates the incorpo-ration of various strategies during the service delivery process.

    Another area in which I possess expertise is work-ing with at risk children and adolescents. My expe-rience working within individuals within this popu-lation consists of providing outpatient, residential, and community-based mental health services to children and adolescents. Services rendered often addresses the needs of at-risk youth whose mental health illness caused significant impairments in var-ious life domains. I have a proven record of accom-plishment for providing similar services that have yielded positive treatment outcomes.

    Program participants have developed skills and learned strategies to assist with symptom manage-ment and reduction as it relates to mental illness. Cognitive Behavioral treatment modality is em-ployed to assist with addressing mental illness as well as to assist with prevention and determent from maladaptive behaviors and criminal activities. The treatment process identifies and addresses underly-ing causal factors that contributed to behavior defi-cits. A critical component of the service delivery process is the inclusion of parent or primary care-givers, who played an active role in the treatment process. In addition, services are person-centered.
