My Approach to Helping
As a therapist, my passion is to assist the individuals I have the opportunity to work with to reach their goals in a way that is authentic to who they are. I strive to collaborate with individuals to identify the paths they desire to take to guide them through their journey in life. I use practical techniques and tools to help clients navigate through challenges while identifying their strengths in a safe space. My approach stems from theories including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Person-Centered Therapy, and Solution-Focused Therapy.
In my free time Ienjoy spending time with my husband, our fur baby, connecting with friends, and visiting my home state of Arkansas to visit family. I love to sing in my church choir and learn to cook Nigerian dishes that my husband grew up eating. I also enjoy watching my favorite shows and romantic comedies to de-stress on the weekends from a long week.
