About Me

I have a bachelor's degree in Sociology from Georgia State University (2010) and a master's degree in Community Counseling (2013) from Argosy University. I am here to help; if you are here, it means you are wanting help! That means we have started off on the same page! So there is no where to go but up!

I have worked in some aspect of healthcare since 1994. I started off as a Medical Assistant in the state of Maryland, then I moved here to GA; where I have been for the last 20 years. As a healthcare professional, I have worked in many specialties; adult, child, family, ob/gyn, neurology, urgent care, emergent care, dermatology, med/surgery and mother and baby. I have taught medical assisting as well as placed Medical Assistant students on their externship. I have worked for large hospitals such as Johns Hopkins University and Dekalb Medical Center. I have also taught in secondary education in career colleges and business schools.

I am Licensed Professional Counselor in the state of GA. I have worked with veterans for several years as a crisis counselor. I started my career working with children/teens as a community counselor. I have a passion for helping one operate in their highest capacity in order to master the basic areas of life; work, family, social lives and purpose. I practice solution focused therapy on a regular basis. This means I am direct and "to the point" as it relates to identifying and working toward solving a situation. However, I will try other modalities if the situation requires another focus. I love helping people and believe help starts with getting one's mental state healthy 1st and that will trickle over to being healthy in all areas of life.

I have the unique experience of not only being a teen parent; I had my 1st child at 15 and my 2nd child at 19; therefore, even though I am licensed; I have experienced hardships and life challenges at a very early age! Therefore, I can relate and identify to most people, regardless of their background, age, sex or trials and tribulations. I am here to help you maximize life fulfillment by overcoming real and self imposed obstacles. I was married to someone of a different culture, therefore I understand the challenges of a mixed and blended family. Communication is key! We can work it out together!
