I understand that therapy is not a one size fits all, so my approach is adaptable and collaborative to meet each client’s specific needs. I believe empathy and unconditional positive regard are key elements which help build a connection with each client to evoke empowerment and change. I also assist them with exploring alternate perspectives and work toward equipping them with skills and knowledge they can implement throughout their lives in order to continuously accomplish their goals. My style is simply one that helps you grow to be the best you possible. I am fluent in Haitian Creole and love working with clients from all cultural backgrounds.
When I am not working, I love to cook and watch re-runs of my favorite shows. When the world was open travelling was high on my list of ways to explore and find adventure with my best friends. Hopefully, we will all be able to do that again.
I believe that “right connection” between you and I as your therapist is a fundamental component to effective treatment. I understand that everyone enters the therapeutic relationship with unique experiences, their own personal stories, strengths and individualized needs. For this reason, I employ person centered methods to create the most supportive, empowering environment possible. My role is to assist you in reaching your goals and achieving positive changes.
I have been trained to work with individuals, families and couples with a number of presenting problems. My area of focus is primarily is in working with adolescents and young adults, specifically the transition to adulthood stage of ages 16 to 25. I work to help my clients navigate the unique things they deal with in that transition age, from identity formation to loneliness, anxiety, depression and the nuances of their identity in terms of who they want to be ultimately. I tend to use a post-modern Narrative lens with Cognitive-Behavioral techniques in my approach to working with my client.
