Clinical Social Work/Therapist, LLMSW
My approach to therapy is based on the Cognitive Behavioral Therapy perspective, which focuses on the automatic thoughts one is having about oneself, others, or the world while addressing unwanted behavior patterns. I will facilitate conversation to work alongside you in your therapeutic journey, and use reframing of negative thoughts, homework assignments, and genuine empathy. I earned my Masters of Social Work and a Bachelor's of Social Work from Wayne State University.
I have experience with Motivational Interviewing, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and Mindfulness-based interventions. I will modify my treatment based on what works best and will establish coping strategies that work best for you, alongside you.
I have provided mental health and life skills to children ages 6-17 in Detroit, MI, helped complete a research paper on a Telephone Outreach program (Healthier Black Elders Center in Detroit), and facilitated a virtual social group for older adults (Party Line).
