I received my Master’s 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 Master’s 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, and for four years an Administrator 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 Black people with various challenges. I provide life coaching, mental health therapy, and clinical consultations to other mental health professionals, as well as to other populations. My concentrated population is adults only. I have walked with my clients after their experiences with trauma, anxiety, grief and loss, relationship problems, professional situations, and other issues causing life impairments. ​I also enjoy providing training and speaking to various populations, as well as mentoring other clinicians.

It is my personal mission is to empower, support, teach, care for, love on, and heal the souls of Black people. Therefore, my mission is ultimately to improve the trajectories of the Black family and the Black community. My specific dedication in working with Black clinicians and Black healing professionals supports my calling to heal, support, educate, and help create more Black entrepreneurs, who adopt my mission as their own.

“Caring for my soul supports completeness and allows me to be connected with my best self.”
