Please take the time to view: https://youtu.be/W9Hi3xXoWQM My former principal once described me as a “natural born” teacher. But I like to think of myself as a “natural born” student. Over the years, I have grown to love the process of examining underlying causalities that often inflict an individual’s mental health and learning how to apply therapeutic principles to assist with healing deficits and improving functioning. My expertise lies in the areas of working with individuals with severe and persistent mental illness (may be transitioning from acute psychiatric hospitalization), substance abuse, Depression, Anxiety, PTSD, and at-risk youth. My overall goal is to assist individuals within these pop-ulations with maximizing their ability to live, social-ize, learn, and work in communities of their choice. I have a proven track record in working with individ-uals with Depression (suicidal ideation and or at-tempts), Anxiety as well as Severe and Persistent Mental Illness. I am committed to working with indi-viduals within these populations, primarily because many have a high level of acuity, which demands an intense services and treatment due to the need of various levels of social and health supports. I under-stand that individuals who struggle with mental ill-ness are a heterogeneous group of people whose en-vironmental circumstances, mental, physical, and cognitive health impairments may lead to a deteriora-tion in their ability to function in various life do-mains. This speaks to the necessity of my engaging in clinical practices that adheres to the fidelity of treatment modalities that are influenced by both eco-logical as well as person centered theoretical princi-ples. Because of this, I have invested in the develop-ment of therapeutic strategies and techniques to as-sist with meeting the needs of individuals within this population.

What can clients expect to take away from sessions with you?

Dr. Moton has been my saving grace. This is my first experience of therapy and it certainly won't be my last. In the space of 3 - 6 months I have realised and opened up more than I ever thought I would. Above all I am so glad to have worked with her to understand my childhood trauma, relationship issues and anxiety. Secret blockers that have been holding me back and putting me down, but every day with the tools that I now have I am able to put my best foot forward and there is no looking back. Life keeps throwing curveball and lemons but I am learning how to dodge them where I can or make lemonade instead. I highly recommend Dr. Moton, Dr. Moton has done a great job being present and not letting me forget that she is a resource for me to use to better myself. She keeps me accountable

What treatment methods and tools do you utilize?

The process of therapy is to help patients identify prob-lems and the thoughts that cause them, and then to help them change their thoughts through thought-challenging and behavioral experiments. I understand that Cognitive Restructuring varies therefore it necessitates the incorpo-ration of various strategies during the service delivery process.

Explain to clients what areas you feel are your biggest strengths.

Another area in which I possess expertise is work-ing with at risk children and adolescents. My expe-rience working within individuals within this popu-lation consists of providing outpatient, residential, and community-based mental health services to children and adolescents. Services rendered often addresses the needs of at-risk youth whose mental health illness caused significant impairments in var-ious life domains. I have a proven record of accom-plishment for providing similar services that have yielded positive treatment outcomes. Program participants have developed skills and learned strategies to assist with symptom manage-ment and reduction as it relates to mental illness. Cognitive Behavioral treatment modality is em-ployed to assist with addressing mental illness as well as.
