Serving With More Than 7 Years of Industry Experience
I'm a licensed African-American clinical therapist, certified social worker, and owner of Rivers Edge Therapy and Counseling Services LLC.
I acquired my Master of Social Work degree with a concentration in children and families from The Whitney M. Young Jr. School of Social Work at Clark Atlanta University. While completing my master’s degree, I took an interest in trauma, more specifically, domestic violence to include intimate partner violence and child abuse.
