I genuinely believe that life is a roller coaster. Whether in the front, middle, or back, just being on the rollercoaster is a milestone to greatness. In today's world, “life will life you,” and it is up to me to assist you when that happens. In a safe, non-judgmental, and confidential environment, you are the expert, and I am here to assist the expert in reaching their goal. In our therapeutic partnership, we will identify issues, triggers, strengths, and barriers. We will also formulate strategies that will allow you to push through obstacles and reach milestones. “Life be life-ing” at times; However, I am here to support and assist in your journey to greatness.
I obtained my bachelor's degree in Social Work from the University of Alabama at Birmingham. I also received my Master of Social Work degree with a concentration in Mental Health from the University of Southern California.
My work career has been centered around mental health. I have experience with
various populations such as children, adults, geriatrics, homeless, substance
abuse, LGBTQ+, and HIV/AIDs positive. For my undergraduate program, I
completed my field placement working with children/adolescents with
developmental delay and/or Autism. In my graduate program, my field
placement focused on adults who battled homelessness, mental illness,
substance dependency, and HIV/AIDs. I also have experience working in an
inpatient hospital where I provide discharge planning.
I specialize in anxiety, depression, stress, grief, personality disorders, and
substance dependency. I utilize therapeutic interventions such as Cognitive
Behavioral Therapy, Dialectal Behavioral Therapy, Solution-Focused Therapy,
Motivational Interviewing, and Psychodrama.
