Trauma can seem like an overused or overgeneralized term in the context of therapy, but many don't realize just how intricate this specialty is. Trauma is so dynamic. A true trauma therapist will have a lens to view the client from the perspective of their entire worldview and all the way zoomed in to their biochemistry and neurology. This is an advanced skill set and it truly makes a difference for the client.

What to look for in a therapist who truly specializes in trauma.

Okay, whew! So, a LOT has been happening! The most significant change is that your girl is an LCSW now ๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽŠ. For those who don't know what that is, it stands for Licensed Clinical Social Worker. This is the highest licensure one can obtain in the field of social work. It just means that I have completed at least (way more than lol) 3000 hours of direct practice and at least 100 hours of clinical supervision (and my supervisor was BOMB!), and I am now qualified to practice therapy independently. I've gained so much training and experience that I can't WAIT to pour into my clientele. Changes are happening people!

In the meantime, while my socials are being updated, I do have availability to take on new clients for standard individual, couples, and EMDR therapy. Reach out to me directly or use the booking link in my bio. See you all soon!

My clients are humans with the right to choose whether or not they follow my guidance. My end goal is for you to feel strong and mighty enough to choose for yourself and make great, healthy decisions, no matter the context of treatment....voluntary or involuntary, therapy or coaching, standard or specialized. It's my role to show you an alternative to how you're currently doing things and support you on your journey to achieving your own goals.

Taking care of our bodies is part of mental health. Fueling our bodies with nutritious foods, hydrating, and regularly exercising can be huge for maintaining good mental health or even alleviating symptoms of mental health disorders and conditions.

However....the journey to excellent health and fitness can be a tricky one. Often, we fall into the "all-or-nothing" pattern, which is a cognitive distortion. We feel that we have to eliminate complete food groups (no sugar, no carbs, etc). We feel like we have to deprive ourselves of the foods we enjoy. We feel like we have to stick to strict exercise guidelines to obtain this healthy lifestyle. This is obsessive, excessive, and overall unhealthy.

Start with small changes like dedicating two or three days a week to doing SOMETHING. It doesn't have to be a full-body sweat exercise; just get moving. Don't deprive yourself. If you want a snack, sure, have a snack in moderation, and try to also have something healthy later on. Give yourself grace to help take away the guilt of "cheating on the diet" or not working out when you felt that you should have. Gradually expose yourself to healthy habits and increase them over time. This is a great way to care for your mental health while taking care of your physical health.

You always hear about spring cleaning when it comes to the home, but summer is a great time to organize your goals and aspirations. Take some time to write the vision. Make lists, build spreadsheets, use a color-coded planner system, whatever you need to visualize your dreams. Try using electronic means (computer, iPad, smartphone) as well as plain ol' pen and paper. Sometimes what you use sparks creativity in different ways. This will help you to come up with a game plan on how to bring them to fruition. I believe in you, and I can't wait to support you in your journey!

In case you were trying to keep your s**t together after yesterday's madness...

As a Christian and a Therapist, I'm holding space for you to be angry. We can work through it later. Anger is a human emotion. Jesus even flipped a table or two in his day. The recovery from anger matters, but you don't have to suppress that feeling, and don't let anyone guilt you otherwise.


It is infuriating that regularly throughout my entire lifetime, people have been murdering children (and teachers/staff) one of the places they should feel safest.

It is enraging that in America, people have shot up churches and places of worship.

It makes me angry that although this s**t is probably preventable with the right legislation, power and greed keeps things the way they are.

I'm just plain sad that American parents (and loved ones) are experiencing this shared compounded trauma and are TERRIFIED for their children to be out of their sight.

I can't even comfortably watch a movie in a theater anymore, I'm hypervigilant the entire time. I couldn't imagine parenting a teen who wants to go by themselves.

Whether it's the workforce, social situations, or anything else, when we are uncomfortable, it is easy for us to retreat into ourselves and mentally crawl into a ball to make ourselves as small as possible so that we aren't noticed. Here's the thing, though; different perspectives make the world go round. Growth can't happen without the views of introverts like us...yes, US! You are valuable. You are needed. You are important.

Do you often find yourself trying to come up with legitimate excuses to get out of things? Maybe you don't have the energy for it. Maybe you don't have the money for it. Maybe you're actually busy and literally cannot do it. Regardless of the reason, it is okay to honor your no. You deserve space when you want or need it. You deserve for your decisions to be considered valid solely because you decided them. You don't owe anyone any explanations. Somewhere down the line we're taught that it is expected that we provide reason and reassurance when we decline. I'm here to tell you that you are not being impolite, you are not being rude, you are not being disrespectful. You're setting boundaries.

I specialize in working with adult survivors of childhood trauma. Childhood sexual abuse is more common than many would ever realize. Bringing awareness this this issue can help so many! Thanks for the work you're doing to bring awareness and raise money for this cause.

If you're starting therapy, it's probably not because you're living your best life right now (and if you are, that's great!)

It may be hard for you to even feel motivated enough to get out of bed, let alone go to therapy, and much less shuffle through providers. Many people don't realize that sometimes you need to try a few therapists to see which is the best fit for you. After all, this is a person with whom you will be sharing your deepest and most troublesome, maybe even embarrassing concerns. You want to make sure you feel comfortable, your personalities mesh, you don't feel judged, and you have confidence in their abilities to help you.

Likewise, a therapist will get a feel for you as a client. If they feel less than confident in the potential therapeutic relationship (your concern isn't in their wheelhouse or they don't have adequate training in that area, personality, or moral concerns), they may refer you to someone they feel can better serve you. Try not to take offense to this. It isn't rejection; it's redirection. It is all part of the process, and that process was created to help you receive the best care possible.

Photo Repost from ............

Have you ever experienced something that maybe even years later still churns your stomach when you think about it?

Did you have a traumatic birth experience? Maybe you had a NICU stay, an emergency c-section, an unplanned, unwanted, or unexpected non-emergent c-section, challenges bonding with the baby, challenging labor and delivery, retraumatizatuon during labor and delivery from something that happened in the past, or even bringing life into the world during a time when you don't feel loved and supported.

Have you experienced a trauma, and you don't have control over thoughts of it, have flashbacks or nightmares, and/or have a physical reaction to reminders of it?

EMDR therapy can help with that.

My interactions with other mental health professionals often leave me thinking...man, it's hard to tell who people really are with all this unconditional positive regard floating around. The thing about it is, our clients are discerning. They can spot a fake from a mile away. They don't need a yes-person or for someone to find all the sunshine and lollipops in every bad situation. Sometimes our clients need us to listen to them and say "yeah...that sucks" without reframing it into something positive and without trying to make it better.

Building genuine therapeutic relationships models healthy communication and appropriate responses to life stressors. It normalizes the struggle because we all struggle, even therapists.

Part of being culturally competent and ethical means acknowledging that there are some benefits to clients seeking care from a clinician they relate to racially or culturally. It doesn't always guarantee better care, but sometimes it's helpful to open up to someone who speaks your language.

As a black therapist, I already understand first-hand that black people have been systemically oppressed for hundreds of years, and I understand how that adds a layer to the treatment plan without my clients ever having to explain it.

I'm not saying that you should only seek same-race providers. Therapists of all races are educated, able, and willing to help, too, but sometimes that cultural kinship makes all the difference.

Hear me out ๐Ÿคฆ๐Ÿพโ€โ™€๏ธ
I know it's the wave right now, but please resist the urge to give yourself ADHD, borderline personality disorder, OCD, etc., because of a 60-second video you saw online.

Even in therapy, licensed clinicians have to use assessment measures along with a period of clinical observation, sometimes over multiple sessions, to accurately diagnose clients to avoid causing harm or wasting time and your money treating the wrong condition.

I do appreciate that mental health awareness is becoming more widespread though โค๏ธ

Feeling dehydrated lately? You can't pour from an empty cup, and you DEFINITELY can't drink from one. Take some time to unconditionally and unapologetically care for yourself, and don't let anyone guilt you into giving up YOUR time.

Emotional wounds are a lot like physical wounds. If you have ever had a cut or a scrape, you know just how uncomfortable it can get. Trust the process. It will get better. It may leave a scar (or a memory), but with time, care, and true healing, it is fully possible to be restored to a healthy and happy quality of life.
