I am a Florida Licensed Clinical Social Worker in good standing with over 20 years of social work experience. I earned a Master’s degree in Social Work from Simmons College in Boston, MA and an undergraduate degree in Administration of Justice and Business from Howard University in Washington, DC. In March 2013, I earned my Florida Licensure becoming a Qualified Supervisor in October 2015.
As a therapist, I work with individuals, couples and families who are dealing with the challenges of life transitions with proven success in the areas of grief and loss, depression and anxiety by building positive, self-esteem, healthy relationships and effective communication skills.
As a holistic therapeutic coach, I specialize in working with adults who are at a crossroads in their life, are tired of suffering in their personal and professional relationships, and are committed to attaining peace and balance. My clients have experienced extraordinary success through the use of my holistic approach integrating their mind, body and spirit.
I bring compassion to my work because I have worked through my own crossroads with the same tools I use to help my clients. It is my utmost joy to develop the gifts and talents of others.
I am deeply engaged in the community operating in various capacities as social worker, counselor, coach, mentor and leader working with clients across various entities including the therapeutic community, faith based and non-profit institutions and private businesses.
One of my own endeavors that is close to my heart and which I am the founder and executive director is Gifted Ones, Inc. It is a not-for-profit organization that uses a Pay It Forward model to provide training, coaching and material assistance to its members who will leverage their life experiences, passion and gifts to be of service to others in need.
In addition, I am proud to be an organizing member and chapter director of Powerful Women Networking, an organization the supports the personal and business growth of its members through relationship building and business networking. I am also the featured “Wise” expert in the educational series, “Healthy, Wealthy & Wise” that is delivered throughout Central Florida.
I believe that it is through a respectful and trusting partnership between therapist/coach and client that the individual will be guided on their path to healing and self-discovery.
I believe that all people have within them a divine spark of wisdom that, with wise counsel and Mindful Guidance, will lead them to a more peaceful, powerful and self-expressed life.
