𝐎𝐂𝐂𝐔𝐏𝐀𝐓𝐈𝐎𝐍: Outpatient Mental Health Therapist
𝐄𝐃𝐔𝐂𝐀𝐓𝐈𝐎𝐍𝐀𝐋 𝐏𝐑𝐎𝐆𝐑𝐀𝐌𝐒 𝐅𝐎𝐑 𝐓𝐇𝐈𝐒 𝐂𝐀𝐑𝐄𝐄𝐑: BA in Communication Studies from The University of NC at Chapel Hill, Master of Social Work Degree from The University of NC at Chapel Hill
𝐖𝐇𝐀𝐓 𝐋𝐄𝐃 𝐘𝐎𝐔 𝐓𝐎 𝐓𝐇𝐈𝐒 𝐂𝐀𝐑𝐄𝐄𝐑? I began my career as a child welfare assessment social worker directly after completing my undergraduate degree. Working in that position was enlightening as so many families were impacted
while concurrently improving the larger family system. I worked closely with mental health clinicians while working in child welfare, which inspired me to become a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW), and a Licensed Clinical Addictions Specialist (LCAS). It has always come natural to encourage people and offer support, which has promoted exponential growth in my personal life and business. I learned to trust my instincts and seek mentorship along the way. My life is led by faith, this is God's purpose for me, all the indicators were there that this was for me, things literally fell in place, piece by piece. The people, the clients, the connections...piece by piece. I have learned to embrace each moment and be kind to myself on this journey as I know that this was my purpose, no one can take that away from me.
𝐀𝐃𝐕𝐈𝐂𝐄 𝐅𝐎𝐑 𝐂𝐔𝐑𝐑𝐄𝐍𝐓 𝐌𝐈𝐃𝐃𝐋𝐄 𝐀𝐍𝐃 𝐇𝐈𝐆𝐇 𝐒𝐂𝐇𝐎𝐎𝐋 𝐒𝐓𝐔𝐃𝐄𝐍𝐓𝐒: Dream big and work hard! Connections are invaluable; always seek mentorship. You do not have all the answers and that is the beauty of your journey, let life surprise you in a positive way. Lastly, never be afraid to ask for help! Everyone needs help sometimes.
