We Are Currently Accepting New Clients in The State of Illinois.
Bonjour! Hello! and welcome to this space. My name is Sidney, I am a Licensed Social Worker, Mental Health Advocate and Mens mental health advocate born and raised in New Jersey City, New Jersey. Some things about me are that I speak Creole, I enjoy exercising and traveling, baseball is my favorite sport and I am a single parent that can relate to the complexities of raising children while also attempting to have some resemblance of a balanced life. I believe in the value of diversity and honoring those from different backgrounds and walks of life.
Cultural competence and the ability to understand others from the lenses that they see the world from is of the utmost importance. I believe that we each bring unique perspectives into this world and influence and impact each other. We each are capable of shining brightly even in the midst of chaos. Oftentimes our light is overshadowed by daily stressors or personal issues that negatively impact our lives and become unbearable to cope with. As your therapist I am here to assist you as you work towards refocusing your light to shine as brightly as you deserve it to shine. I am here to help you cope with the stressors that impact your day to day life. I am here to work alongside you towards the life you deserve. I work to create a space that is transparent, comforting and non judgemental, freeing you from the need to hide your true self which would only prevent you from healing and growing. We will decide on goals and strategies that will help improve your life.
I believe that any and everyone has the power to change their circumstance with support, guidance, self-discipline, dedication and determination. By recognizing and becoming aware of behavioral patterns and thoughts you will be able to arm yourself with the tools needed to challenge and change your behaviors, thoughts and emotions. I like to apply this quote to life, “Rejection is acceptance when were dealing with a changed mind”. We all have strengths and areas for growth. Lets restore or find that light of joy and peace. Lets work together towards you becoming the best version of yourself no matter the current circumstances. Let not your past determine your future! The time for change is now!
