My Approach to Helping
I began my collegiate career at Grambling State University in Louisiana earning an Associate's Degree in Sociology. I would later receive a Bachelor's Degree in Criminal Justice from California State University, Bakersfield. After seeing the need to help others in the community I attained my Master's Degree in Social Work from California State University, Bakersfield as well.
I have had the pleasure of serving my community in the Greater Los Angeles Count for the last 6 years, working with the emergency room department, Special Victims Unit, as well as Department of Mental Health, and Telehealth for various companies through EAP services for the State of California.
The past 6 years I have specialized in:
Cognitive behavioral approach, depression, grief and loss, anxiety, posttraumatic stress, group treatment, children's advocacy, child trauma, school counseling, behavioral modification, suicide prevention, and stress management.
I believe in identifying the strengths of those I serve working towards effective coping skills to assist clients holistically.
