About

I am an LCSW with over 26 years of service to Child / Adolescent, and adult individuals with mental health and psychoactive substance use challenges. I have been recognized for my Clinical skills in Fulton and Dekalb counties as well as the Grady Health Care systems. I use the Substance Abuse Subtle Screening Inventory(SASSI) to support Individuals with interest or requested to have Substance Abuse Evaluations. As a Licensed, AASI Clinician; I am able to administer Sexual Interest Assessments to Adolescents and Adults.
I see and hear what each person identifies as disturbing, and non-functional towards goal achievement, identify their strengths, and encourage them towards taking the risk to make changes, and to cultivate motivation for positive change. I introduce therapeutic modalities based on the positive effects the interventions have on each individual.
In the past 26 years, I have worked with thousands of people experiencing challenges in their lives. due to MH/SA, and co-occurring problems. I have always, and will always address the needs of each person. As a Vietnam Era Veteran; I honor the privilege to be a facilitator of positive change for those who gave so much.
