Licensed Clinical Social Worker
We all have the strength and courage to meet life’s challenges. It is important that my clients and I develop trust and a positive therapeutic relationship. I provide an accepting, empathic, and nonjudgmental approach to the therapeutic process.
I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW). I graduated from Jackson State University with a Master’s Degree in Social Work. I received an undergraduate degree in Sociology with a minor in Psychology. As a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, I am committed to the mental health and well-being of the clients in I serve. I have over 10 years’ experience providing therapeutic services to children, adults, individuals, and families. I also have several years of experience working with active duty military service members and their families as well as military veterans.
My clinical experience includes working with the Department of Veteran Affairs with a primary focus on trauma and substance abuse and working with the Department of Defense with the primary focus on mental health, family relations, and domestic violence. I also have varied clinical experience in the areas of adoption and attachment, foster care, mental health, and forensics.
My professional career includes a commitment to serving the needs of individuals utilizing an evidence-based therapy model. I have received specialized Cognitive Process Therapy, Structured Child Interviewing, and Motivational Interviewing. In addition, I have expertise in the areas of loss and trauma, Family Systems, Crisis Intervention, and training Cognitive Behavioral Therapy through the Beck Institute.
As a therapist, I assist clients coping with depression, anxiety, loss, relationship issues and trauma. My method of treatment is to utilize a client centered approach to promote healing and positive change. I provide an environment of compassion, respect, and support to assist individuals and families in overcoming obstacles in their lives.
