Using a person-centered approach and evidence-based, yet culturally safe techniques, I have had some successes in working with those who've experienced trauma, especially related to adverse childhood experiences (ACES) resulting in depression, anxiety or relationship and/or boundary issues. It is my belief that the client holds the reins and that goal attainment is within her/his grasp. My training at Columbia University and New York University, along with my Social Work code of ethics, are foundation for a philosophy of respect for the client's right to self-determination while monitoring for safety.

I just had my first session with Fay. She was humble and gave me the space to share or not to share, but at the same time asked thought provoking questions about me, life and who I am in Christ.

Fay is such a great listener and understands what the core problems are. If you want Christian based treatment, Fay is strongly recommended. As a Christian she approaches with holistic treatment based upon scriptures who are in need help for trauma, anxiety, anger issues.
