EACH DAY THAT WE ARE ALIVE IS ANOTHER DAY TO GET IT RIGHT, JUST REMEMBER- WE ARE ALL "A WORK IN PROGRESS" DAILY
I believe that self-sufficiency is key to personal and professional success. I enjoy working with/assisting individuals who are in the transitional phases of their lives. Treatment is individualized to the person receiving services. My theoretical approaches are Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT), eclectic and holistic. I prefer to treat the "whole" person instead of pieces. By helping others to succeed regardless of our ages and stage in life, I succeed. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor who's niche focuses on African American teens and women's issues: trauma; self-esteem/ self-worth; relationships; single parent/blended families and family issues. Most of our daily issues from the past or present can be resolved through counseling and/or coaching; However, both require trust, honest communication, problem-solving and goal setting. I am effective with this population because this is the population that am a part of and with which I can identify. I am able to work well with this population because most issues which my ideal client is experiencing/has experienced, myself, my friends and/or family have dealt with and overcame.
