I have received formal and extensive training in reflective practice, Motivational Interviewing (MI), Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT), Interpersonal Psychotherapy (IPT) and have completed training via the Postpartum Support International Program (PSI).
I believe in social justice and advocacy and I combine my experience as a community Mental Health Therapist, a Certified Lactation Educator (CLE), a mother of two, and my lived experiences as a Woman of Color to inform my work with supporting parents and caregivers in cultivating a positive, nonviolent, and supportive relationship with themselves and in their parent-child interactions.
