I enjoy helping people process their concerns, recognize and build upon their strengths and learn to manage their bothersome symptoms more effectively. My goal is to assist people in finding meaning and purpose in life, as well as in moving toward self-acceptance, so that they can live healthier, more productive and fulfilling lives.

Tinceia, is a caring person that has shown me more empathy in the two sessions than I have recieved my whole life. I feel comfortable with her and I feel no judgment from her. I can tell her things I thought I could tell no one. I feel Bonded to her already.

Nearly 8 months ago, Tinecia went on a journey with me, and I am so grateful. She has helped and encouraged me in continuing to improve my mental health. I have also had some new obstacles appear, and Tinecia has been super helpful in providing me with new techniques. Thank you, Tinecia, for caring as much as you do, and providing your expertise.

Written on Apr 11, 2022 after therapy with Tinecia for 3 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, addictions, self esteem, and career difficulties

I have made more mental health progress with Tinecia in a few months than in years of trying to handle things on my own. I thought my main issue was substance use, but she helped me realize that drinking was a habit and coping strategy for my anxiety. With some work on calming my physical anxiety symptoms with breathing techniques and reframing stressful situations (or realizing that the negative outcomes I'm stressing about are unlikely), I feel more purposeful and confident. After I started thinking about things differently and coping better, I cut back on drinking without even really trying. My only regret is not getting therapy years ago. I've already taken more days off from drinking in 2022 than I did in all of 2020 and 2021 combined and I don't stay up late ruminating anymore.
