MA, MSW, Supervisee in Social Work


As a resident in Counseling, my mission is to assist both children and adults with substance use to help with overcoming their mental health issues. I believe that to help someone with their substance use, it is important to combat the source of their trauma. My goal is to provide high quality assistance to both youth and adults with mental health and substance use disorders who are in crisis because it is the principal route to reducing adverse events, including those that lead to psychiatric hospitalization.

I specialize in substance use disorders and mental health diagnosis of individuals who have experienced a series of traumatic events in their life. I use talk therapy along with several therapy modalities to include Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Solution Focused, play therapy, and the Adolescent Community Reinforcement Approach to assist individuals with working through their source of trauma.

I joined the field of Social Work because of the love to help others who are in need, and wanting to make the world a better place for our youth and adults in the community. I am currently an outpatient therapist with the WTCSB State Opioid Response team working with children and adults who have co-occurring disorders. I have been an employee of WTCSB since 2019.

I have a total of eighteen years of experience working with children and adults who have mental health diagnosis and substance use disorders. I have 4 years of professional experience as a Outpatient Therapist and Clinical Assessor.
I have a professional background with 15 years of experience with providing Mental Health Skill Building, Intensive In-Home Services, running psychosocial and substance use groups to assist the public in preventing psychiatric hospitalization, providing access to community resources, maintaining stability in the home and community, and prevention of removal from the home to include jail, psychiatric hospitalization, or detention. I have 3 years of professional experience with crisis stabilization, as well as working with youth and adults in the prison system and working with youth in foster and adoption.

In addition to having clinical knowledge and skills I am currently certified as a CPR Instructor, Adult Mobile Crisis, and Children Mobile Crisis. I graduated from Virginia Commonwealth University with a Bachelor of Science in Political Science in 2007, a Master of Arts Degree in Criminal Justice in 2011 from Norfolk State University, and a Master of Social Work Degree in 2018 from Norfolk State University.
