My Approach to Helping

I provide culturally relevant counseling to African-American individuals, couples, and families. My approach to helping is one that is theoretically, biblically, spiritually, and culturally based. I utilize a Cognitive Behavioral therapeutic approach that focuses on how maladaptive and dysfunctional thinking affects feelings and behaviors. I work with my clients to help them overcome emotional problems such as depression, anxiety, and anger by teaching them to identify, challenge, and modify cognitive distortions. I also utilize therapeutic approaches that focus on attachment and human relationships.

More Info About My Practice

I am a Certified Clinical Trauma Professional (CCTP) and a Certified Employee Assistance Professional (CEAP). I offer very flexible appointment scheduling, which includes evening appointments. I also provide Teletherapy (i.e., therapy via HIPAA compliant videoconferencing).

Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With

Some of the specific issues I'm skilled at helping with are Depression/Mood Disorders, Anxiety Disorders (Generalized Anxiety Disorder, Panic Attacks, Social Phobia/Social Anxiety), Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD), Trauma/PTSD, African American, Women's, Marital, Relationship, Post Partum Depression (PPD) and other Perinatal Mood Disorders, Parenting, Spirituality, and Employment Issues.

How Psychotherapy Can Help
