I received my Masters degree in Social Work (MSW) and Pupil Personnel Services Credential in School Social Work and Child Welfare and Attendance from California State University Long Beach. I became licensed by the State of California as a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW). I also earned a second Masters in Educational Leadership from California State University Dominguez Hills. I am also a Certified Christian Life Coach from the Professional Christian Coaching & Counseling Academy (PCCCA).
I have worked for almost two decades providing social services in various settings. For eleven years, I was honored to provide mental health services to children, adolescents and their families as a Psychiatric Social Worker for the second largest school district in the nation.
For six years, I was an Adjunct Faculty and Field Liaison in the Master of Social Work (MSW) Program at California State University, Dominguez Hills.
Since 2011, I have maintained my private practice, which is devoted to helping people with various challenges. I provide life coaching, mental health therapy, clinical supervision and consultations to other mental health professionals, as well as to other populations. My concentrated population is adults, families and couples, and I have walked with them after their experiences with trauma, grief and loss, professional issues and other problems causing life impairments.
I also enjoy public speaking to various populations, delivering Professional Development trainings and mentoring other clinicians.
It is my personal mission is to empower, support, teach, care for, love on and heal the souls of black people; and therefore ultimately improve trajectories of the black family and the black community. My specific dedication to working with black clinicians and black healing professionals supports my calling to heal, support, educate and help create more black entrepreneurs, who will do the same.
