About me

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with a master’s degree in Social Work from North Carolina Central University. As an adolescent, I developed a passion for helping others to improve their lives. I maintain a strong desire to provide support to individuals of all ages who deal with psychological challenges, and I am dedicated to assisting adults with navigating life's challenges through utilizing individualized care and evidenced based approaches. Within my career I have had the opportunity to provide mental health therapies and crisis response services in a wide range of settings. I utilize treatment modalities such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Solution Focused Therapy and Motivational Interviewing to assist clients with gaining insight, developing problem solving skills, and regulating emotions. I enjoy supporting clients in processing negative thought patterns which impact their quality of life in addition to providing psychoeducation on how to reconstruct thoughts to gain new perspectives. Inspired by the quote of therapist Amy Morin: “Time doesn’t heal anything, it’s how we deal with that time that determines the speed at which we heal,” I take pride in empowering clients to become the experts of their own lives. Making the choice to seek therapy demonstrates courage and commitment; and I am honored to be a partner in your process! I look forward to meeting you where you are within your journey and utilizing individualized treatment approaches to attain your desired outcomes.
