About My Clients

My client's are superheroes aka the go to person, the strong one, he one who holds it down for everyone else, while silently falling apart? Work life balance have you feeling unbalanced, no time for self-care, overwhelmed by your to-do lists; but always have a solution for someone else? If so, you are the superhero! You've been searching for help when you don’t FEEL strong? Has your search landed you feeling hopeless, take off your cape, put your feet up, & come see me,let's get #BetterTogether

My Background and Approach

I have been working in mental health and substance abuse settings in various roles since 2003. I have worked with with various specialized populations such as human trafficking victims, re-entering citizens (adult male felons returning to the community post incarceration), juvenile sex-offenders, childhood victims of abuse, neglect and abandonment, people who are severely and persistently mentally ill, and more. Working with these very high risk clients, the exposure to trauma, and grief started to lead towards burnout and an inability to manage life, as life came, and on it's terms. NO I did not have a mental breakdown, but an AH-HA moment were I realized that I had to care for myself as fiercely as I care for others, as a result SW Social Support was born. So while my focus is other mental health professionals, first responders, grad students, and Christians, all superheroes are welcome, to join the tribe, and get #BetterTogether

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe everyone needs someone to turn to, a voice of reason, a reality check, and a cheerleader, all of which are aspects of Social Support; I believe that person should be trained to appropriately help you. I an Apostolic Pentecostal and a member of the UPCI. I am married to a wonderful man, whom I love deeply. I am a graduate of Broward College where I obtained my AA in sociology, I then went on to FAU where I got my Bachelor of Social Work, finally I attended Barry University's advanced standing MSW program. Once my formal education was completed, I became licensed in the State of Fl as an LCSW, then became a field educator and a Qualified supervisor for social work and psychology students.
