Confidentiality – A client’s right to privacy is respected and all client information is kept confidential.
Community Engagement – The Rosetta Center offers and participates in community events that promote the principles of health and wellness.
Personal and Collective Empowerment – Each client served is encouraged to be an active participant in their own life, to develop their own path towards wellness, and to contribute to the creation of healthy families and communities.
Holistic Well-Being – The Rosetta Center seeks to support the integration of all dimensions of wellness including social, spiritual, emotional, intellectual, physical, occupational, environmental and financial to create the optimal environment for healing and thriving.
Cultural Competence and Humility – The Rosetta Center is committed to ongoing training in assessment and service delivery to underserved populations. We seek to learn as much about various cultural identities at the same time recognizing our own limitations. We approach each person with an openness and humility that allows us to learn about an individual’s personal experience within their culture in their own terms. We are always learning!
I earned my Master of Science degree as a Mental Health Counselor in 2010 and worked in Berkeley, California. I am currently a Psychological Assistant and am working towards my psychology doctoral degree and licensing. I have experience in individual and group therapy working with clients who are struggling with depression, anxiety, relationship difficulties, abuse/trauma, grief and loss, domestic violence as well as couples and families who wish to improve their communication and relationships. I work with clients from diverse cultures in a collaborative effort that builds on individual differences and strengths. I assist clients to identify core conflicts to treat underlying causes and symptoms and ultimately assist clients to develop their own path towards wellness.
I am currently a Psychological Assistant and I am working towards licensure. I completed my Doctoral Program at John F. Kennedy University. I place a huge importance on being culturally sensitive with all my clients and creating a safe and comfortable environment. My primary goal in pursuit of a career in psychology is to provide education, reduce the stigma of mental health and help my clients achieve quality of life. My experience has been very diverse in various clinical settings, with a wide range of pathologies. I have experience in behavioral medicine, individual and group therapy and inpatient and outpatient assessment. I have worked with clients with anxiety, depression, trauma, grief and loss, domestic violence, anger/aggression, addiction, and chronic illness/pain. However, I take a strong interest in helping clients who are struggling with anxiety and depression. My approach to helping clients begins with education and providing coping strategies, which then transitions to helping my clients identify their thinking patterns and core beliefs to gain different perspectives and shift their way of thinking.
I am currently in my last semester at William Jessup University and completing my internship here at The Rosetta Center for Counseling and Wellness. I am pursuing a bachelors in Psychology and will go on to complete my MSW and hope to work with children and families. I have a passion for people and believe that mental health is a crucial aspect of our overall health. I have thoroughly enjoyed my time at The Rosetta Center so far and look forward to continually learning more from Dr. Mimms. I am here to assist with anything that I can. I firmly believe in The Rosetta Center’s mission and values and seek to do my part in making it welcome to all, treating people with respect and actively listening to each client’s concerns and needs.
