Jackson State University
Clinical Interest: individual and group counseling, trauma and resiliency, the impact of adverse childhood experiences on racial identity development and coping mechanisms, Depression, Cultural and Diversity issues, family of origin concerns, emotional regulation, and multicultural counseling.
Theoretical Interest: I operate from an integrative approach tailoring each treatment plan according to the client’s needs. Theoretical Orientations that I draw from primarily include: Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Multicultural therapy, and Mindfulness. I refer to my office as “the boxing ring” where clients can fight their obstacles and challenges with me as a guide to reach the ultimate victory of healing.
Approach to Supervision: I approach supervision from a developmental framework integrating the supervisee’s cultural background and approach to therapy to increase knowledge of self, confidence, and utilization of theoretical orientation in a therapeutic setting.
