Mental Health Provider
Howard University
Hi! I'm a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, certified to practice in Washington D.C. and Maryland. I received my Master’s degree in Social Work with a concentration in Mental Health from Howard University in 2011. I also received a Bachelor’s degree in Social Work from Bowie State University in 2009. As a therapist, I create a judgement free and culturally sensitive environment for all. I strive to be genuine and authentic in sessions, humor, and warmth to create a safe space. My role as a therapist is to support and encourage you as you take steps towards making changes in your life. I use a supportive approach with a variety of treatment models-Person centered, coaching techniques, Cognitive Behavior Therapy(CBT), Solution focused, multicultural, trauma focused, and strength based. With over 12 years of experience working in the mental health field, I continue to believe that every person has the innate ability to reach their fullest potential.
