My passion is for fostering spaces for exploration, discovery, healing and growth. To the role of clinical supervisor, I bring insatiable curiosity, experience in relationship-building and a clinical lens shaped by both providing and receiving services. As a Black recovering woman, I know the truth: therapeutic care must recognize and allay the damage of environmental and systemic oppression. This is vital. Since 2003 my work has been with people experiencing problems related to substance use, trauma, mood dysregulation, psychosis, poverty, stigmatization, criminal injustice and oppression. This work has occurred in outpatient offices, inpatient hospitals and in home and community-based settings . Additional experience includes teaching undergraduate social work students in the classroom, and graduate social work students in the field. Navigating the world from multiple spaces invalidated by the dominant culture has shaped my therapeutic approach – affirming, sometimes directive, always welcoming and engaging.

Radical Well-Being Center provides creative and healthy space to supervise newer social work practitioners as they grow and hone their own skills. Together, we are reshaping our system of care into one that promotes healing, inclusivity and community.

Kindness eases Change.
Love quiets fear.
And a sweet and powerful
Positive obsession
Blunts pain,
Diverts rage,
And engages each of us
In the greatest,
The most intense
Of our chosen struggles.

– Octavia Butler
