Hi, my name is Ingrid, and I appreciate you for stopping and reviewing my profile.
It’s not a secret that signing up for therapy is a huge step for many… No one wants to [be] feeling all uncomfortable while trying to explain to a complete stranger the reasons and issues that pushed them to seek out professional help from someone who may or may not understand them.
This is why I believe that finding the RIGHT therapist is one the most crucial parts of the therapeutic process. I also believe that therapy should be a place where you feel safe to divulge your darkest secrets while knowing that the individual that you confide in, will not only support your journey of self-improvement and healing but help guide you like a beacon in the sea or a flashlight when it’s dark. It’s my opinion that therapy should give you a familiar sense of comfort, like when you’re talking to a good friend.
So let me tell you a little bit about myself… I am a graduate of Howard University School of Social Work and a Licensed Clinical Social Worker who provides therapeutic services to the states of Missouri and Illinois. I have over 10 years of experience in the mental health field; I have experience with a variety of issues which includes but does not limit trauma, substance abuse, stress, women’s/men’s issues, selfesteem, anxiety, and depression. I also have worked with a variety of populations like active duty /retired veterans and their dependents, college students, LGBTQ+, and older adults. I use a variety of modalities like Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, PersonCentered, Brief Solution Focused Therapy, Multicultural Perspective, and Strength-Based Therapy.
I don’t know if I will be the perfect fit for you, but I do know that I am willing to take the time to find out while helping you along your journey of healing
