Collaborations are very important and almost always necessary. I like the saying it takes a village! Collaborating ensures accuracy and addressed needs for my clients.
In the beginning of my career, I came with a wealth of knowledge about corporate but very little knowledge around mental health. After working in a MICA shelter for 5 years, I realized that it was a natural fit for me and how much I enjoyed helping people reach different Plato! Substance abuse and Mental health was my training ground for my foundation that I continue to build upon and I am so grateful for such a real start!
Meeting a client where they are and at the point they are ready to proceed is critical. I believe a person is the best author of their life and she be allowed to write their own story.

I have made my North Carolina my home and I am in the process of establishing my own private practice. I am committed to helping people overcome addictions to alcohol and drugs, eating disorders, depression, anxiety, and other stresses that affect all of us at some time in our lives I believe that healing is a collaborative endeavor that requires honest caring without judgment, and I cooperatively assist my clients in clarifying their goals for treatment. Rather than adopting one methodology for all individuals and issues, I draw from a variety of methods to create a tailored approach for each individual and situation. As a therapist, I am warm, open, encouraging, and direct. I consider myself an active therapist, combining experience, education, creativity, and sense of humor with a down-to-earth, realistic approach to counseling.. EXPERIENCE I have over 20 years of experience as a mental health social worker. Before starting my own practice, I was a Program Director for a Women's MICA shelter in Brooklyn, NY and a Program Director for Women's Community Justice Association in New York working with men and women who were formerly incarcerated. Prior to that, I was the social services director at Urban Strategies in New York. I have assisted victims at the Center for Battered Women, and have worked with adolescents and adults in local private sector schools and other psychiatric settings. I have a wealth of volunteer experience working with the elderly, high risk populations, and supervision. I am currently working as a volunteer with SCORE to provide support to inspiriting entrepreneurs and have extensive knowledge of the stresses inherent with being in business for yourself. In addition, I am a board member for Steve Harvey Follow-up mentorship program and sit on the board of director with NASW. I have vast experience counseling clients with eating disorders, depression, anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder, and substance abuse. My background enables me to be an extremely effective social worker who is comfortable counseling diverse groups of people.
