17 years of experience

Hello ... I am a licensed clinical social worker. I have a master of social work degree from North Carolina A&T State University and UNC at Greensboro. I have provided counseling to many in my community in diverse employment roles across the field of social work. Some include experience working in inpatient psychiatry, medicine, hospice, and dialysis at a community hospital, and mobile crisis clinician with a community mental health agency; and finally VA Health Care. I take pride in my ability to connect with others and help them meet personal and/or professional goals. In my spare time, I love to read psychological thrillers, listen to my favorite podcasts and audiobooks, play Match 3D on my phone, and watch movies with my son.

What can clients expect to take away from sessions with you?

In our first session, I want to get to know you. I strive to understand your strengths, concerns, and goals.

Explain to clients what areas you feel are your biggest strengths.

I thrive on my ability to connect and partner with clients to give them the effective tools to navigate life's challenges. I use active listening and understand the benefits of building rapport with my clients.
