I am a LICSW (Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker) in Washington state. My career has been dedicated to those with chronic, life-limiting illnesses and with this population I have had the privilege of working with individuals from many backgrounds and identities. My designation as a social worker affords me the expertise to provide not only mental health counseling but real resources for real-life issues that can often get in the way of emotional healing.
As a Black American female, I am painfully aware of the shortage of mental health professionals in the BIPOC community. I am here on BetterHelp to expand my services to better meet this need. I am EMDR trained and am in the process of becoming certified in EMDR therapy. My specialty is working with those who have experienced trauma and since that is 70% of Americans, I seek everyday to bear witness to another's pain and promote healing. In addition to EMDR, I utilize attachment, CBT and narrative therapies in my practice. We will work together to determine the approach that is best for your healing.
Often the hardest step is the first one. Congratulations on doing the hard thing and taking care of yourself! I look forward to working with you.
