MSW, LCSW, LCAS, CSI

I believe we are all recovering from something. As a clinician, I believe that a healthy nonjudgmental relationship is foundational to each of our healing journeys. Having someone who we can be honest with, who is honest with us, allows us to be honest with ourselves and reach our ultimate potential. While the therapeutic relationship is our foundation, I incorporate elements of motivational interviewing, solution focused, cognitive and dialectical behavioral therapies in a trauma informed approach to meet you where you are and help you get to where you want to be.  As a dually licensed clinician, I bring a unique competence in treating mental health and substance use disorders independently or in co-occurring form. As a Certified Clinical Supervisor Intern (CSI) with over 45 hours of supervisory training, I provide supervision to professionals pursuing their LCSW, and/or LCAS, LPC.  For 13+ years, I have practiced in various clinical settings working with children, adolescents, and adults enduring a wide range of mental health, substance use, and traumatic challenges. In addition to individual and family therapy, I provide groups and workshops: 1) helping individuals with co-occurring mental health and substance use disorders manage their interrelated symptoms 2) helping African American men develop cohesive identities in complicated work, school, and living environments; 3) helping women develop the skills needed to build and maintain healthy relationships, following unhealthy experiences; 4) as well as helping parents improve communication to more effectively navigate the ever evolving landscape of rearing adolescents and young adults. I have a passion for empowering people in search of balance and look forward to doing so with you.

What do you love most about your work?
There are few greater experiences than seeing the light bulb come on for a client who was struggling when we first met. As someone who has personally dealt with depression and anxiety, I seek to reduce the stigma and shame around illnesses that no one chooses. Having the chance to be a part of someone’s journey to healing and recovery is something I do not take for granted as it is a true gift.
