Biracial Counselors’ Mission:

You are the expert on your own life and life experiences. Our goal is to help you heal and increase your confidence in yourself and your own beautiful skin. Remember, you are in the driver’s seat of this journey; I am in the passenger seat as we go through your healing journey!

What Solutions Will We Develop Together?

“Do you feel like you don’t fit in with others, perhaps because of your racial identity, sexuality, gender, military experience, or disability? Then you’re not alone! Do you feel lonely and want to make friends and have meaningful relationships with others but fear rejection because this has happened in the past? Lastly, are you feeling hopeless, worthless, rejected, abandoned, invisible, and forgotten, and want to increase your confidence to make meaningful relationships? Let’s work together to achieve this goal together.

Let’s work together to find the solutions to help you increase your confidence and build meaningful relationships. Many people like us have found success in learning to accept ourselves for who we are and not who others want us to be. Many clients like us have discovered new ways to form meaningful relationships with good people.

I understand feeling like I don’t fit in with “the crowd” and wanting to be accepted by “everyone.” Therefore, I cope by keeping to myself so I will not feel rejected by others and feel sad, depressed, and alone. Can you relate to asking yourself, “Why me? Why don’t I fit in with everyone? What’s wrong with me?” If so, let’s chat, call me.”

Finding The Right Counselor:

As you start this recovery journey it is essential to have a trusted mental health counselor along the way. Like each snowflake, no two counselors are the same, and you will need to find the right fit for you, which can feel like a big challenge. My goal is for you to feel supported throughout our time together to process your experiences in a safe therapeutic environment.

I encourage you to ask yourself the following questions to understand what you seek in a counselor. 

What Preferences Do I Have?

1. Do I want a counselor of a particular sex or gender?

2. Do I prefer a younger or older counselor?

3. Do I prefer a counselor of my ethnicity or from my cultural background?

4. Do I want a counselor who knows the difference between sex, gender, and sexual orientation?

5. Do I want a counselor with a shared life experience?

6. Do I want to meet a counselor through telehealth or in person?

These are just a few of the questions I would encourage you to consider in making an informed decision about your care and determining if I am a good fit for your needs.


What Can I Expect In Treatment?

As a licensed professional counselor, I believe treatment should be episodic, meaning you come to therapy for a limited time, and we work on the goals you outlined. After achieving these goals, you will be discharged from treatment and continue implementing these tools and changes throughout your life without my direct support. After all, you came to treatment, you put in the hard work, and now it is time to keep moving forward without being in counseling services. If you have different goals you want to accomplish or need to strengthen some of your previous skills, then you are welcome to come back for another episode of care.

I provide therapy with a person-centered foundation. Moreover, treatment is provided through an assimilative integration approach. So, I will primarily use Solution Focused Brief Therapy and incorporate Reality Theory and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. When we are working on your trauma, we will use Brainspotting. I would encourage you to look at my theoretical intervention page to learn more about them and see if they will meet your counseling expectations.

Investing in My Mental Health Recovery


Counseling may seem expensive and it can pay off in the long run by enhancing my quality of life and helping me get to and stay in recovery. Therefore, mental health counseling can be a valuable investment for my well-being. It can help me cope with stress, reprocess my trauma, improve my relationships, and overcome complex challenges. Counseling can also reduce depressive and anxiety symptoms and sometimes even eliminate the need for medication.

My Aftercare Plan

“You must apply what you learn daily to make the most of your counseling sessions. Counseling is not a quick fix, like taking a pill; it requires active participation and commitment in our counseling sessions and outside, while you apply your real-life skills. If you stop practicing the skills and strategies you learned in counseling, you may fall back into old patterns of thinking, feeling, and behaving. Recovery is an ongoing process that goes beyond counseling. That’s why you have an aftercare plan. Your aftercare plan is personalized to help you maintain and enhance your mental health after counseling. It may include taking your medication as directed, joining support groups or follow-up sessions, taking care of yourself, avoiding triggers, using healthy coping skills, and reaching out for help when needed. Your aftercare plan can help you focus on your recovery and avoid mental health relapse.”

The Counseling Process

The counseling process is a collaborative effort between the counselor and the client. It involves the following stages: establishing a trusting relationship, exploring the client’s issues and goals, developing a treatment plan, implementing interventions, and evaluating progress. Ethical principles and professional standards guide the counseling process.
