Treatment Philosophy

J’Quaysha utilizes a therapeutic framework that incorporates a strength-based, person-centered, and trauma-focused approach to address social justice, anti-racism, and oppression. Her own lived experiences as a little black girl growing up in Kansas shaped her path to begin this healing work and society’s response, or lack thereof, to the importance of BIPOC mental health lit the way. J’Quaysha specializes in working with the transitional age youth population, ages 15-30, who live with a variety of mental health challenges ranging from mild depression, identity conflicts, anxiety, trauma, psychosis, and suicidality. She implements an integrative approach that pulls from ACT, CBT, DBT, Solution Focused, and Family Systems.
