About me

Hello! I am licensed clinical social worker located near Detroit, Michigan. I grew up in Detroit and was a first-generation college graduate. I have spent my social work career working as a medical social worker and providing psychotherapy. I practice from a multiculturally competent and trauma-informed perspective, and life experiences have helped me be comfortable with individuals from a variety of life perspectives. I connect with clients deeply with compassion, kindness, determination, and certainly a sense of humor as appropriate. After 20 years in the field my toolbox is full and I am passionate about helping others acquire the tools they need to attain their goals. Let’s do it!
