My Approach to Helping

My approach to helping is to increase people's awareness about the benefits of therapy. I try to accomplish this by increasing a person's knowledge of what therapy is and how it can assist them in improving their quality of life. It is particularly important to address the stigma, myths and misconceptions about therapy, especially for people of color. Many African Americans are very reluctant to seek out assistance because they are afraid of being labeled as "weak and/or crazy". They do not necessarily trust others who do not look like them or feel that they can not relate to them; this is why my focus is primarily directed towards people of color. My goal is to offer them a caring and professional therapy experience in a safe and secure setting. My hope is that in doing so, they will truly be able to achieve a whole, healed and fruitful life.

More Info About My Practice

My practice is conveniently located in Jenkintown, PA just outside of Philadelphia and is very easily accessible by car and public transportation. I work with children, teens, and adults, providing services to individuals, couples and families.

How My Own Struggles Made Me a Better Therapist

I know first hand how difficult it can be to make the decision to seek out a therapist. When my life became too painful to manage on my own, I knew I had to do something. Despite my best efforts to manage on my own I finally made the decision to seek assistance and found a wonderful therapist of color who helped me to work through my challenges and heal. As a result of my own work and struggle I came out on the other side feeling empowered and inspired. I had made it through and this is a big part of the reason why I decided to pursue this work. I really wanted others to know that they could do it too!

What I Say to People Concerned about the Therapy Process

What I say to people concerned about the therapy process is that it is as unique as you are. The process is your's to create and define. It truly is your work and the therapist is not there to judge or criticize but help to create with you an environment in which you can examine your life situation(s) and/or challenge(s) in a judgement free and objective way to seek the solutions that work best for you.
