I strive to meet my clients where they are providing a nonjudgmental and safe space, while together we journey towards self-determined goals and positive change. I am passionate about empowering individuals to find the best within themselves to overcome life’s stressors and traumas. I am committed to creating individualized treatment plans to meet the needs of my clients by first focusing on strengths and utilizing an array of techniques from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Solution-Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT) and Person-Centered Therapy.
I have experience working with individuals across the life span and families from various backgrounds and cultures. I work with clients who experience emotional and or behavioral disturbances which include; however, are not limited to anxiety, depression, substance use, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), trauma, school avoidance, self-esteem issues, life changes, emotional dysregulation, suicidal ideation and self-harming behaviors.
I earned my master’s degree in Social Work at Catholic University of America and am currently a Supervisee in Social Work. My educational experience includes a Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology from Norfolk State University. I practice under the supervision of George Coyne, LCSW. I also maintain a professional membership in the National Association of Social Workers.
