B.A. Psychology May 2004

My journey towards becoming a psychotherapist began during my undergraduate career at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro where I received my BA in psychology. The years following were spent working in various settings both clinical and academic. I taught special education with emotionally disabled students, I was a mental health technician for teens on an inpatient setting; I worked as a part-time psychology research assistant at UNCG, and prior to leaving North Carolina for graduate school, I assisted a psychiatrist at North Carolina Neuropsychiatry with patient interviews, psychological testing and research.

 

I earned my MSW from Hunter College in 2010 and then focused my time on pursuing a clinical license in social work.  I worked out of a small outpatient clinic in the heart of a multicultural Brooklyn neighborhood.  The location provided me the opportunity to learn about how people from different backgrounds and cultures are affected by mental illness.  I learned how to implement various treatment modalities across a range of psychological and dynamic issues.

 

Currently, I have brought my expertise to my new position as a psychotherapist with the Veteran's Administration in Columbus, Georgia; a job that brings new challenges and opportunities for continuing education.

 

My goal in creating an online private practice is to bring my knowledge and expertise to clients who are in need of quality psychotherapy treatment that is also convenient and easily accessed.
