In treatment I utilize a culturally informed approach to care, and work to create a safe space where you are free to be your authentic self without reproach. Additionally, I utilize a theoretical approach that explores the influence of early relationships on current functioning. In each therapy relationship I collaborate with clients to gain insight to your unique experiences and how these experiences contribute to the current distress experienced.
I completed my master’s degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling in Atlanta, Georgia and received my Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) in Clinical Psychology from the California School of Professional Psychology (CSPP) in San Francisco, California. Through training I have worked with clients in various settings including community mental health centers, university counseling centers, inpatient hospital units, and forensic settings. In these settings I have been afforded the opportunity to work with individuals from culturally diverse backgrounds. More specifically, my clinical experience involves working with ethnic, sexual, and gender minorities across the lifespan, individuals living with HIV/AIDS and other chronic illnesses, substance use, and other marginalized groups. Currently, I am pursuing licensure as a Psychologist and receive supervision from Dr. Stanley.
