Trauma is an interesting part of life, you are not expecting it, and you barely understand it. Now you are forced to deal with it. I have experienced enough trauma, Grief and Loss, sadness, and Depression to last a lifetime, from childhood issues to adult issues. However, I had to build a team; you would call this team a support system, you want to build your (Team) Support system, and you are not alone. It is easy to fight your battles alone and to suffer in silence. I want you to know that you do not have to.
Areas Of Focus: Depression, Anxiety, Grief & Loss, Behavioral Disorders, PTSD, Parenting, Psychosis, and Childhood/Adult Trauma, and Personality issues, such as Passive aggression.
Your human capacity is limitless when you are empowered to be in control of your life. At the Therapist of Color Collaborative, you will be partnered with a professional to give you the encouragement you need to unlock your healing process and begin your journey.
All of your work in therapy is grounded in an approach centered around your person and is focused on moving you beyond what has held you back.
