Do you need support with finding a therapist and/or community resources?
Do you want to learn about mental health topics or need tips to experience relief?
Do you want to learn how to advocate for yourself when working with mental health professionals?
As a mental health therapist you might think I am biased and that I suggest going to therapy because, I am in the field. The reality is I have had multiple therapist myself and know what it is like to do the work. I never wanted to be the therapist that doesn’t know what it is like to also be the client. It is important to not only empathize, but truly know what it is like to walk the path. Throughout my work thus far, I have realized that the community is not informed much about the mental health field. This can look like referring to every therapist as a psychologist, accepting “therapy” services from someone who doesn’t have the qualifications, and many others choices. At times these choices tend to cause more harm than good when an individual finally wants to seek services. Locating the therapist you feel could be a good fit for you can be discouraging due to roadblocks you may hit in the system. I want to be there to provide you support and make sure you are informed. On the other hand you may be someone who never wants to step foot in a therapy office. I see you too! I decided to also offer support in educating you to build your knowledge and skills to apply daily. This would not be a replacement for going to individual therapy, as nothing can replace that, but it can be helpful for you to maintain.

Are you a first generation graduate student?
Do you struggling trying to balance all of your responsibilities?
Do you feel you could be getting more out of your supervision?
Grad school is not an easy feat and if someone told you it was they played you. I managed to roadmap my courses, work, practice self-care, spend time with loved ones, travel, earn honors, and graduate on time with a cumulative 4.0 gpa. This is coming from the girl who actually dropped Psychology the semester before graduating because, she was failing the course (clearly God knew what He was doing)! Throughout my journey as a trainee and associate, I questioned if I made the right decision, cried on my bedroom floor, and experienced peer/leadership conflict. While gaining my hours I always felt a hunger for more answers. I would ask supervisors questions, but would still be left needing more information. My supervisors have always felt I kept them on their toes. I feel as much of an investment entering the career field is, you deserve to feel fully prepared for examination and confidence in your work once licensed. I have always created a plan with my supervisors to identify goals and had in-depth conversations to not accept the bare minimum. It took me a while to learn those skills, but I want to offer them to you.

From the various years of experience I have gained from working in school settings I have learned that any assistance with mental health support is always appreciated. I have worked with all ages, including middle schoolers in the special education counseling enriched classroom. A few things I have recognized is that teachers need support with understanding how mental health shows up in the classroom, how to deal with crisis, support in advocacy, etc. Building relationships with the parents is also very rewarding and needed if you want the work you do with students to go beyond the classroom. Parents need to feel heard, especially since they are entrusting the schools to have their child’s best interest at heart during more hours than they are with them during the week. Connecting with parents, providing them a safe space, and showing them I value their children helped fill the gap. I found pure joy in being able to work one-on-one and in groups with students. Nevertheless, I know it is essential for the people who support the students to be well, informed, and also have space. I can help by providing support to teachers, parents, and the rest of your school community.
