Why Do We Need BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, People of Color)
Mental Health Clinicians?
Many times, the Eurocentric model and techniques that dominate the mental health field alienate and neglect individuals from marginalized communities. Instead, care should incorporate healing practices from the clients' own community.
As a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC), a Nationally Board Certified Counselor (NBCC), and a certified School Counselor, working both in public schools and private practice, I have enjoyed providing therapeutic support to teens, college students, individuals, couples, families and groups from and outside of the BIPOC community. With years of experience and a heart to serve, my desire is always to educate, motivate, inspire and empower my clients to successfully navigate through the challenging and sometimes difficult experiences of life.
In 1993, I earned a Bachelors of Science degree from the University of Detroit Mercy and in 2012, I graduated from Spring Arbor University with a Masters of Arts degree with a dual focus in School Counseling and Mental Health Counseling.
