I graduated from Howard University, School of Social Work in 2000. I have Master’s degree in Social Work as well as a Bachelor’s degree in English. I have experience working with couples, adults, and adolescents in treatment modalities such as couples therapy, individual therapy, and family therapy. My practice style can be described as eclectic in that I utilize various treatment techniques that work best to meet the client’s needs or presenting problems: such as cognitive-behavioral, task-centered, problem-solving, and cognitive approaches. During the first session, the client can expect to participate in an initial assessment where the goal of the session is to establish and document a diagnosis, identify functional impairments, and symptoms.
