About Us

Our Commitment to
Our Client's Well-being

I am so excited that you are considering me and my team as a partner with you on this journey called life! I am a South Florida native, born and raised in Miami-Dade County. I attended Walden University and completed my Doctorate of Social Work with a focus in Administration in 2021. I attended Florida International University where I earned both my Bachelor’s (2005) and Master’s Degree (2006) in Social Work. I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in the State of Florida. I am also certified in Child Welfare, Trauma Focused -Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Six-Sigma Green Belt , Certified Telehealth Provider and trained in several crisis management interventions. I also speak fluent Haitian/Creole.

I entered this field because when I sat in my Introduction to Social Work class, I heard the professor speak a lot about helping others.  She also mentioned that helping others while incorporating your faith was ok too!

I knew then that this was the field for me. I have over 14 years of experience providing care and treatment to members of our community as well as providing supervision and leadership to newer professionals in the field.

My passion is in helping others find their way by teaching them how to change their thought patterns, develop new normal’s for themselves and learn how to use their Faith for guidance. I also enjoy helping other Mental Health Professionals find their niche and develop their skills.
