Why did you decide to become a mental health professional?
I believe that everyone should have a “person”, or a support system to help them walk through life. Social work embodies so many values that I adapt in my personal life. Being a part of a profession that allows me to be true to myself and support others has always been ideal.
What is your favorite thing about your job?
Touching the lives of others is my favorite thing about this career. Being able to provide clients with care, various resources, while problem-solving and navigating through issues as a unit. I emphasize the term unit because I consider the work we do together being a team, and I think this strengthens my connection with clients.
What is your ultimate wish for every client?
Not everyone is provided the same luxuries in life and I feel that my role is alleviating some of the pressures that come with that and bridging the gap. I wish that every client feels solace and a sense of relief when entering our office space, as I do being that it provides a sense of home.
What is your favorite quote?
Anything from Maya Angelou is my favorite but one that comes to mind :
“Nothing can dim the light which shines from within.”
Who is someone who inspires you?
I may have given this away with my quote, but I’ll add a few more. My inspirational people include Beyonce, Maya Angelou, Michelle Obama, and truthfully the women in my family. I believe that powerful women, come from other prestigious women and who would I be not to acknowledge the women before me.
What is your favorite self-help book?
My personal library includes so many that I don’t have a favorite book, but the self-help authors I’d recommend would include: Elaine Welteroth, Iyanla Vanzant, Maya Angelou, Michelle Obama, and Shannon Boodram to name a few.
