About me

I earned a Masters in Social Work and Masters in Public Health from Tulane University in New Orleans. I have specialized in working with people living with HIV work through mood disorders, trauma and family conflict for the past eight years.

I draw from cognitive-behavioral, Rogerian and solution-focused theories. I focus on your current concerns and work with you to develop strategies to cope with your current situation. My goal is to listen empathically to ensure you feel supported and provide feedback and suggestions when appropriate. Former clients have described me as straightforward, non-judgmental and attentive.

I offer live phone or video sessions on weekdays with very limited weekend availability. I usually respond via text throughout the day on weekdays with less frequent communication on the weekends.

Making positive changes in your life can be challenging and I commend you for taking this step. My license only allows me to work with people who live in Tennessee. I look forward to working with you.

During several transitionary seasons of my life, Raven remained a supportive source of help. I'm thankful for her gracious approach.

I really appreciate Raven’s attention to my care. She regularly checks in with gentle nudges to make sure I am taking good care. And always responds in a timely manner.
