Hello! My name is Destiny, and I want to commend you for taking those sometimes difficult first steps towards wellness. Starting therapy and allowing yourself to be vulnerable with someone can be very scary, which is why I make every effort to work with someone at their own pace.
I graduated from Wayne State University with my Master of Arts in Counseling. I am passionate about mental health due to my own experiences working through grief, trauma, and depression. I am committed to social justice, and I strive to create an affirming environment for folks of any sexual orientation, gender identity, or gender expression that is inherently anti-racist and anti-oppressive. I am knowledgeable about the LGBTQ+ and disability communities, and have experience working with neurodiversity, intellectual disabilities, veterans, survivors of sexual assault, the infant-caregiver relationship, and individuals struggling with depression and anxiety. I prioritize the development of a safe and healing relationship between myself and the client, and I view this relationship as an agent for positive change.
I believe that a person is not defined by their problems, and that the “problem” at hand oftentimes moves past that person and falls within different social and systematic contexts. I primarily work within a cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) framework with a focus on mindfulness and acceptance, but I will tailor treatment interventions specific to what a person may benefit from. My goal as a counselor is to meet a person where they are at through a holistic lens and walk alongside them during their journey through healing and recovery. I look forward to working together with you to achieve your goals in the way that best serves you.
