About Me

Hello and thank you for visiting my page.
I am a Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker in Massachusetts and a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in North Carolina. I have over fifteen years of experience working with preteens to seniors. My experiences have taught me the importance of being an active listener who is nonjudgmental and noncondemning. In my work, it is important for me to inspire others.

My specialties include Ethnic discovery, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Solution Focus Therapy, and Executive Functioning skill development. Because every situation is different and flexibility is important I also use eclectic variations of meditation, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, and Strength-Based strategies. Since prayer has shown to relieve tension and provide focus, together we will consult about its use during the counseling sessions. My willingness to hear your words and heart will guide our discussions depth and aid in the establishment of goals.

In much of the Bible, we learn about peace, joy and well being. Together we will pursue and practice skills to diminish or resolve issues that get in the way of obtaining your own level of well-being. I am inspired by Philemon 1:5-6, and the good things Christ has for you.

It would be my privilege to assist you in finding your place of peace, joy, and wellbeing.

I've been with Mrs. Cleo for almost a year now and I remember coming to her as a bruised, battered down man with nothing in sight. Now that I've had the perfect counselor to push me and build me back up, I can see things a lot clearer. I look forward to what the next years have in store for us. Thank you Mrs. Cleo!

She is a good listener and response in time whenever I need her.

The goat.

Greatest of all time.

I have nothing but great things to say about her.

I feel comfortable, she's nice, and she understands everything!

I'm glad God led me to her.
