The anxiety therapist, who works with clients from diverse walks of ethnic life and people with lived experiences welcome you here to “explore” your options in taking this major step I commend you on; in seeking help. Being the anxiety therapist, I work with clients to “Clean out” and “Reinstall” using various methods suitable to each person’s individual experiences and assessed needs. Clients can expect the experienced anxiety therapist to work with clients, who has experienced domestically stressful situations, interpersonal issues, love and family issues, self-esteem challenges, depression, life transitions, occupational stressors, “Stuck” thoughts, and many other topics that become prevalent to everyone’s revision process. Methods are selected based on each client’s individual’s needs, with the following as options: EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing Therapy), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Solution-Focused Brief Therapy, Motivational Intvw, and Reality Therapy.
I believe that functioning in the role of a therapist is solely a role but being a healer at the level provided in therapy is a way of being. I have been the way I am, the mediator, solution-oriented person my whole life. There was a point where thoughts of what life may be like as a "Helper" crossed my mind, but my goals and outcomes led me directly to where I am. I have not had to stray away from my life-long aspiration of helping people overcome daily and complex struggles in their lives. Every job pursuit I have had entailed working within human services helping people to achieve health, wellness, and stability in their lives. My best experience before arriving in my industry was working with children and their families to preserve their family units. This job isn't for the weak because times approach where Child Protective Services workers may have to remove children due to a lack of safety. However, the unique thing I admired about my selected division within the "System," CPS, was being able to "Preserve" by working with families to reduce their risks of harm to children and vulnerable populations. In this unique division, success was measured by few to no removals. I am a compassionate person, who can say out of over 3+ years working with the department, I had only 1, removal. I complete processes with the persons impacted by the procedures in mind and have performed this throughout my life. Being EMDR and CPT trained are nice but not as competitive as the cultural and lived experiences.
Interestingly, preservation didn’t end working with humans, as I expanded my knowledge of preservation by divulging into real estate, where I also preserve. I believe in finding balance in many areas of living. Currently, I am somewhere between 1900s R&B and Soul or a Megan or Cardi B lyric. Don’t leave out other rap artists of today. That’s what I like to think of as balance. I am okay when others have varied opinions. That’s just one characteristic that makes me stellar in my occupation.
I've learned many things in my life in and out of school. The greatest lessons have come from those with experience. I am a lifelong learner and CEU achiever that seeks to enhance my skillset and competence on a consistent basis. I find that being impactful in others' lives means that I would need to maintain refresher courses and keep my toolkit sharp. Holding a book is one thing, but holding space is my favorite thing.
I look forward to meeting you! Thanks for stopping by!
