Biography:

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in the state of Georgia. I am also a trained Neutral (Mediator) with the Georgia Commission of Dispute Resolution. I obtained my Master of Social Work degree from Clark Atlanta University, and my Bachelor of Science degree in Psychology from Fayetteville State University in North Carolina. My professional affiliations include the Georgia Society for Clinical Social Workers and Therapy for Black Girls.

 

Previous work experiences have given me the opportunity to work closely with clients and families in all phases of treatment. My goal is to help clients overcome obstacles that may be standing in the way of personal success. Clients have described me as being supportive, down to earth, and knowledgeable about current societal issues. My approach is integrative, applying therapy, medicine, and physical health to promote holistic wellness. I utilize the following theoretical concepts: Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction, and Solution Focused Therapy.

 

When I am not in therapist mode, my personal life is pretty busy. I'm a wife, a mother to a wonderful 4 year old boy, a sister, and a friend to many. I enjoy yoga, music, traveling, and exploring different cultures.

Chicago, IL and Gary, IN

What personal challenges have you overcome or are working through as a result of your upbringing?

Gary was one of the roughest cities when I was growing up and was often considered in the top 5 of the Murder capitol list. I have experienced class mates as well as others that died due to gun violence. I also feel many of my anger issues were due environmental factors.

 

What inspired you to become a therapist?

I wanted to provide a space where people felt comfortable talking to me and providing some refuge. I also experienced some of my own traumas and wanted to help others work through theirs. It has always been my calling to help people!

Where did you grow up?

Military Brat

What personal challenges have you overcome or are working through as a result of your upbringing?

Growing up in a household with a parent in the military can be very challenging. As a result, I was able to observed the breakdown of my parent's marriage at a very early age. These issues led to their divorce. Due to the ongoing challenges of their co-parenting relationship and the unhealthy 2nd marriage of my custodial parent, I experienced a disconnect in the relationship with both of my parents for many years. Through open and honest communication, we've grown tremendously.

 

What inspired you to become a therapist?

 I attribute my education in Social Work to aiding with my own self-discovery. I'd taken some elective courses in SW and it piqued my interest but I was pregnant, a Senior and too close to graduating, so changing majors wasn't an option. I gave birth to my daughter less than a month after graduating college. I was 22yo with a newborn and had a LOT of learning to do. Returning to school for my BSW and MSW was a path of healing in the midst of what could have been utter chaos.

What are your specialties?

Depression, Anxiety, Work/Life "Balance," Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Psychotherapy, Comorbidity/Chronic Disease Management
