Growing up I became accustomed to living in the great area of Hampton Roads. It's such a great mesh of military, beach life and overall great people! However, I would often spend my summers in New York, which eventually led to my first introduction into the field of Social Work!
What personal challenges have you overcome or are working through as a result of your upbringing?
Personally, I have been able to overcome many life hardships including emotional distress, depression, anxiety and lack of FINANCES!
What inspired you to become a therapist?
Wanting to help others is a passion and fire that has been ingrained into my DNA. The "Healing Spirit" is definitely something that comes naturally for me and something that I have been so grateful to be blessed with.
Deciding what I wanted to do with my life was a "no brainer."I had already decided prior to graduating high school that I was going to help others. In 2013, I found myself graduating with a Clinical Psychology Degree; ready to save the world. However, prior to saving the world, I was able to obtain my Master of Social Work Degree in 2015; leading me to be a real life superhero today! Remember all social workers wear capes! Over the last few years, I have been able to devote my time to professional development. This includes trainings in multiple therapies and continuous education for best practice in the field.
