My therapeutic style consists of utilizing techniques from Systems and Cognitive Behavioral theories. I also encompass multicultural perspectives into my clinical work. I enjoy working with marginalized populations paying special attention to diversity factors, such as processing how systemic barriers (e.g., microaggressions), political climate, and other factors (e.g., first-generation, racial identity) inform my clients’ psychological wellbeing and/or affect academic functioning. I have experience working with clients for a range of presenting concerns, such as issues related to depression, anxiety, adjustment, academic, family of origin, etc.
My supervision style encompasses techniques and practices from Developmental and Cognitive Behavioral approaches with a multicultural lens. It is important to me that I offer a collaborative, supportive, open, and safe space for my supervisees to process and enhance their clinical, professional, and personal development.
My professional interests include identifying systemic barriers (racism, stigma, prejudice) and ways these barriers impact academic functioning, mental and physical health, career and vocational exploration. I am dedicated to reducing stigma among individuals in marginalized communities and committed to promoting physical and psychological wellness and educational/career development. I enjoy social justice and advocacy work that focuses on inclusion, diversity, and supporting underrepresented/stigmatized populations.
Groups and Liaison Roles:
I am facilitating the group Colorful Women I and II, which are process/support groups designed to offer women of color a unifying therapeutic forum to share experiences while developing life affirming strategies. I serve as a liaison to the Hale Black Cultural Center.
I obtained a BA in psychology and sociology at Cleveland State University. I received an MEd in Clinical Mental Health Counseling at Cleveland State University and hold a Professional Counselor license. I obtained a PhD in Urban Education specializing in Counseling Psychology from Cleveland State University. I completed my pre-doctoral psychology internship at the University of Missouri’s Counseling Center.
I enjoy activities that help slow down my brain! For example, reading, watching movies, taking vacation trips to cabins, and relaxing are some of my favorite activities. I also love spending time with my family and friends.
