People want relief and to thrive, not just survive. Breaking old habits of negative thinking can be challenging because they can feel normal and comfortable. My approach to therapy incorporates a collaborative approach to therapy because YOU are the expert on you, principles from CBT to find healthier ways of thinking and empowering yourself, a trauma-informed lens, mindfulness and at times a dose of humor. The tools that I’ll incorporate are varied and can include talking, music, art, using the body, and writing as a form of self-expression and exploration.
I have registered for and will be attending a yoga teacher training in the Fall because I believe that integrating both mind and body is key to the healing process. I also believe in dismantling cultural stereotypes surrounding Black women, their bodies and their experiences in America. I’m an avid reader and supporter of Patricia Hill-Collins for this reason and her work around race, class, and gender.
