I am a proud graduate of the University of South Carolina where I received my Bachelor of Science in Criminal Justice (2002), a Master of Social Work (2005) and a Graduate Certificate in Drug and Addiction Studies (2010). I am currently authorized to practice as a Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker. Throughout my career, I sought to improve the negative effects of environmental factors including stress from health, vocational, family and interpersonal problems. This includes providing individual therapy, facilitating / co-facilitating therapeutic groups, completing comprehensive bio-psychosocial assessments, making referrals and empowering families and individuals by giving them the information and tools necessary to navigate and negotiate systems such as health care, entitlements, housing, etc. I am currently certified in Problem-Solving Therapy and trained in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and Cognitive Processing Therapy-PTSD. Personally I have a caring heart and have been a source of support for family and friends my entire life.

Yaa-Serwa is one of the best therapists I've ever had. She is very solution oriented and gives great advice. She offers me strategies that allow me to step back from my feelings a little bit instead of being totally eaten alive by my emotions.

I feel completely comfortable talking with Yaa-Serwa, and she has given me new ways to look at my problems. She has made me recognize some of my negative thinking and has helped me by giving me tools to switch that around. She is amazing and I really do appreciate talking with her.

Yaa-Serwa was able to pull a variety of information out of me just by talking with me. I didn't realize I did a lot of negative comments towards myself until she pointed them out and talked about them. She helped guide me towards a more positive way of thinking and gave me concrete tools to use whenever I was in a pickle. I appreciate everything she did for me during a time in my life that felt helpless and my "ship was sinking". With her help, she helped guide me towards a more positive future and a future of self love. Thank you for everything Yaa-Serwa.
