Great to meet you!
I am an African American Woman Master's level, licensed mental health counselor trained in EMDR, CBT, Suicide Prevention, and Anger Management. I worked in various behavioral and cognitive health agencies. Before becoming a licensed mental health counselor, I served in the faith-based community addressing teens, women, and couples'’ issues/crises for over 20 years.
A bit about my approach to therapy
As a Black African American woman therapist, I can help you reach your goals to become the best version of yourself. My clients are shown kindness, patience, and evidence-based tools to challenge negative thinking/behavior patterns. Clients are encouraged to process negative feelings, pull back layers of pain in the past or present traumas in a safe and private setting.
What you can expect from our first session
Therapy at Aurilia's offers evidence-based tools to improve self and mental -awareness. The goal for clients is to feel heard, unpack unwanted thoughts/ behaviors. The ideal clients, adolescence, adults, or couples struggling with conflict, anxiety, grief, trauma, anger, or major depression. Many of my clients bring in emotional pain, symptoms of stress, and depression that have taken a toll on relationships. Other clients feel unbalanced, disconnected, confused, or isolated.
