Are you looking for an ethical, experienced, well-rounded supervisor who will prepare you for the counseling world? Look no further! As a LCSW that has been in the field for over 15 years, I have been afforded the opportunity to work in a various social work arenas: mental health, medical case management, Child Protective Services, school social work, residential treatment facilities and insurance. In regards to mental health, I have worked inpatient, outpatient, non-profit, and private practice. As a former Program Director of an adolescent residential facilities, I am experience in working in the administrative aspects of social work. I specialize in trauma based therapy utilizing EMDR and CBT. My passion lies in working with the BIPOC and Spiritual communities.
I supervise from an educational perspective while using a variety of theories, including cognitive-behavioral and person-centered modalities. Supervision is a collaborative effort where it is no longer a professor-student role but more of a collegial, mentor/supervisor relationship.
