"Nurturing Restoration, Cultivating Strength" 

Hello! I’m Sherolde

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

I am a diversely experienced psychotherapist who helps BIPOC women overcome a variety of issues related to traumatic events, racial trauma, intergenerational and historical trauma, and other global traumas.  

I use Eye Movement Desensitization Processing (EMDR), which focuses on restructuring maladaptive processing to more adaptive processing of traumatic memories or experiences.  EMDR integrates neurological processing of internal and external experiences.  This allows unprocessed memories to link with adaptive memory networks.  The other modalities I use include Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Narrative Therapy, and mindfulness.

Healing trauma requires a positive therapeutic relationship between therapist and client.  An appropriate therapeutic relationship facilitates healing and creates an environment prime for navigating the work to be done.  I am wholly committed to being your partner in your healing journey through compassionate, non-judgmental holding of space to allow you to express necessary and culturally sensitive areas of emotional, mental, and physical pathology.

Are you struggling?

Are you carrying the burden of trauma passed down through several generations of women?

Does it feel like the ancestors are begging you to make a change for the future generations of women in your family?

Are you struggling with the loss of a loved one through violence, suicide, or abandonment?

Have you tried to solve the problems in your life on your own and realized you need help from someone else?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, then you have made the right choice by being here. We know seeking help can be hard. You've likely been debating seeking help for months, if not years, but we're so glad you have taken the courageous step of being here.  

Together we can work to help equip you with the necessary tools to help you face and overcome your challenges. Whether you're struggling with intergenerational trauma, historical trauma, or racial trauma, it is important that you know you don't have to be alone in this journey. We have the experience to help you achieve your goals, overcome these struggles, and live a more fulfilling and meaningful life. 

We understand no two individuals are the same, and we tailor our sessions together to address challenges unique to you. We will work together to understand the root cause of your struggles and address them with long-lasting strategies, helping you get closer to the life you've always wanted.If you're ready to work towards the life you've always wanted, we're ready when you are. Contact us today and let's get to work.
