My name is Tamineca Lollis; I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and have been a therapist for 16 years. My approach to therapy is very client-centered, solution-focused, and strengths-based. As a Christian, I believe that addressing one's mental health using biblical truths and evidence-based treatment is important to accomplish inner freedom and fulfillment in life and discovering your purpose.
I use evidence-based practices and my primary approaches are CBT, Strengths Based and Solution Focused Therapy, and CORS (Crisis Oriented Recovery Services). I am currently working towards becoming a Certified Parent Coach and Certified Somatic Trauma Treatment therapist
I have training in treating depression, anxiety, life transitions, parenting issues, divorce, single parenthood, grief, and trauma. I prefer to work with individuals, families, and groups, including young adults, adults, and older adults.
My communication style
My commitment is to work with clients in the most nurturing and empowering way so that clients can become the best version of themselves. It is important to me to assist clients in feeling supported with addressing past issues and open to utilizing new techniques to develop new and healthier patterns.
My journey to mental healthcare
I wanted to become a therapist because I saw at an early age the need people had for supportive services. Growing up, I believed that my purpose was to support, advocate for, and empower others. As a therapist who is African American, I also believe that it is important for me to help address mental health in my community, and I want to especially extend my services to support those dealing with mental health symptoms as a result of race-related issues
My goals for you
My focus is to help clients discover (or rediscover) their purpose to have a better understanding of themselves and others
My first session with you
During a clients first session with me, a client can expect to be in an environment where they are supported, listened to, and begin to understand how to develop a healthy and collaborative relationship.
