About Me

I am a clinical social worker licensed in Mississippi with 9 years of professional work experience. My experience includes helping adult clients better manage stress and anxiety, depression, adjustment to life changes, and coping with grief and loss, as well as, enhancing motivation and self esteem. I also carry a specialized certificate in Gerontology, with knowledge and tools to address issues related to aging.

My treatment approach is individualized, based on client’s needs and desires, always prioritizing the dignity and worth of the client. My primary style includes strengths-based work, a person-centered approach, and cognitive behavioral therapy.

It takes courage to seek out a more fulfilling, happier life and to take the first steps towards a change. I am honored to be a part of that journey, supporting & empowering you along the way.
