As a Cognitive Behavioral Therapist (CBT) with a trauma informed focus, Quinisha assists clients to challenge and alter unhelpful thinking and behavior patterns.  Through the use of research-based methods, her clients are able to improve their emotional state, develop personal coping strategies, and resolve problematic patterns of behavior to ultimately reach a higher level of functioning. Although Quinisha’s primary therapeutic orientation is CBT, she utilizes a wide range of therapeutic modalities such as Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), mindfulness and other therapeutic approaches.

Providing culturally sensitive treatment is a cornerstone of Quinisha’s values as a therapist, and she encourages clients as they navigate through the therapeutic process. Utilizing a holistic approach, Quinisha incorporates care coordination within a multidisciplinary framework to help clients thrive across multiple settings. Quinisha thoroughly enjoys helping her clients blossom into their own identities by empowering their personal growth and promotion of self-love.

Quinisha received her Bachelor of Arts and her Masters of Social Work degrees from the University of Illinois at Urbana- Champaign.  She has extensive experience with severe patient populations through her work at residential care facilities, correctional facilities, intensive outpatient and partial hospital programs, and crisis management services.
