Do you sometimes find yourself feeling unsure when treating clients in the LGBTQ+ community? Do you wonder whether the term: “cultural competency” applies to the LGBTQ+ community? If either of those answers were “yes,” this training was designed for you!

The umbrella of culture reaches beyond ethnicities, religion, or disabilities. During this training, you will learn about the concept of cultural competency with the LGBTQ+ population, gaining necessary tools to help engage with clients, the research supporting the efficacy and how/when to utilize said tools.

As a clinical social worker, my mission is to provide culturally competent, holistic psychological services which aim to promote individual growth.

I received my Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from Norfolk State University in 2015. After which, I attended Liberty University and received my Master of Arts in Human Services Counseling; Marriage and Family concentration in 2018. In 2020, I furthered my education and re-enrolled at Norfolk State University where I received my Master of Social Work: Clinical Concentration in 2022.

I have served in many capacities within the clinical social work and mental health fields for over nine (9) years. In my experience, I have worked with individuals ranging from age 5 to late adulthood. Additionally, my clientele included individuals from an array of cultural backgrounds including LGBTQIA+, Hispanic, Native American, Muslim, and more.

I specialize in providing outpatient therapy for those who have been diagnosed with Serious Mental Illnesses and Serious Emotional Disturbances- depressive, conduct, mood, gender, and adjustment disorders.

In my practice, I utilize several treatment modalities such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Solution Focused Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), Trauma Focused- CBT, and Behavior Therapy.
