My education background includes a Bachelor of Science in Psychology from Elizabeth City State University and a Master’s of Science in Mental Health Counseling with a Concentration in Clinical as well as a Certificate in Rehabilitation Counseling and Behavioral Addictions from North Carolina Agricultural & Technical State University (NC A & T SU). While attending NC A & T SU, I joined the American Counseling Association as well as the Alpha Tau Omega Chapter of Chi Sigma Iota International Counseling Honors Society. My clinical experience includes previous internships working with adults dealing with a range of mental health and substance abuse disorders through individual and group sessions. Past clinical work experience consists of working as an outside contractor assisting veterans by conducting their mental health disability evaluations for Veteran Affairs.
I became a member of The Madeline Centre, Inc. in 2017 working as an Intensive In-Home Staff seeking a way to further my passion for helping people in all aspects of life. Since adolescence, I have always had that listening ear for my family and friends through good and bad times. I still remember the number one reason why they opened up to me, and it was because they felt safe and free of judgment. I continue to hold onto those same principles today when working with my clients. With The Madeline Centre, I aspire to remain eager to learn and easygoing as I continue my journey of becoming a well-rounded professional.
When I am not at work, I enjoy spending time with my line sisters and Sorors of the illustrious Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated. I also take pleasure in naps, watching scary movies, and finishing word search puzzles in one sitting.
