Approach to Therapy and Professional Interests
One of my primary goals as a therapist is to collaboratively create an affirming environment and atmosphere of safety that is dedicated to mental health wellness. My approach to counseling utilizes a Gestalt, Feminist, Cognitive (CBT & DBT) based integrated framework. Through my experiences with diverse populations, I have found that attending to cultural and contextual factors provide genuine opportunities for individuals to be their authentic selves. This, in turn, facilitates a sense of safety and connection, which I view as central to the therapeutic process. In therapy, I often focus on aiding students in self-discovery, empowerment and self-acceptance, while also providing tangible cognitive coping skills needed in increasing overall well-being. I look forward to supporting fellow Aggies and our Aggie community in achieving mental health wellness and finding ways to cope with the academic demands and life stressors. My areas of interest and expertise include providing services to marginalized populations and individuals with intersecting identities. Other areas of expertise and professional interest include: cultural holistic wellness, identity-based trauma treatment, HIV/STI prevention, sexual health, community outreach, equity consultation, mood management, and coping with past individual/community traumas.
Personal Statement on Diversity and Social Justice
Growing up in a diverse rural Black community, my value of social justice, inclusiveness and communal support was cultivated. I learned very early on how affirming others experiences can be validating and fundamental in connecting and empowering communities. Professionally, I consistently strive to embody this perspective in therapy, outreach, assessment, and through community partnerships. My commitment to social justice is centered on building connections, encouraging vulnerable identity-based conversations, and fostering restorative mental health and holistic healing. I believe my passion for social justice advocacy, experience with systematic multicultural interventions, and knowledge of culturally informed interventions aids in my ability to meet the unique needs of our diverse student population. #SocialJusticeWarrior #CommunityCare #MelaninMentalHealth #EnvironmentalJustice #HealingAfricanDiaspora #LGBTAffirming #EmbraceLatinx #TeamInternationalStudents #BlackPsychologist #Inclusivity&Connection
Approach to Supervision
I approach supervision from an integrated Gestalt, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and Relational-Cultural Theory framework. I aim to collaboratively create a supervision experience that is empowering, impactful, and supportive. My goals are to help supervisees grow in confidence of their clinical abilities while also incorporating identity-based authenticity. As a lifelong learner I view the supervision process as an opportunity for genuine learning, connection, and growth.
