ABOUT ANDRE PRUITT
My particular focus is healing from trauma through a cultural lens that supports healthy self-expression and emotional freedom. I have been trained in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and I embrace trauma-informed protocols. Through trauma-informed protocols, I a...ssist people in developing the skills to manage symptoms of anxiety and depression. I also assist people through life changes and managing chronic diseases.

I have extensive experience working in HIV/AIDS service organizations, county and community based mental health organizations, and public schools. My experience includes working with organizations serving young adults 16 to 26 years old who are experiencing homelessness.

My research interests focus on privilege and oppression as it impacts LGBTIQ2- S, and people of color. Interest expands to cognitive health in active older adults. My teaching and research interest are informed by Black Feminist Thought, Africana critical theory, Africana paradigm, and queer theory. I enjoy research that brings marginalized voices into the center of research. My enjoyment of research increases when I am able to incorporate Afrocentric approaches in qualitative epistemologies.
