More about me

Licensing: MSW, LICSW, PIP
Years in Practice: 6

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in the states of Alabama and Virginia. My experience includes clinical social work, risk management, regulatory compliance, quality assurance, case management, crisis intervention, advocacy, brokerage, education, and facilitation working with diverse groups of children, adolescents, and adults in medical social work, child welfare, mental health/chemical dependency, HIV/AIDS, and Veteran Affairs. While working with these clients, I have acquired necessary clinical skills relevant to culturally diverse practice and effective outcomes. I am a well-organized, highly motivated, and an energetic team player dedicated to meeting my clients where they are through both micro and macro level social work interventions.

Working in Mental Health for over 12 years, I've learned that people are literally trying to put the pieces of their life together just to make it through the day. Being sensitive to this, I've developed my practice model around the following quote, "We're only as strong as our weakest link; therefore do your best to strengthen someone today!" My goal every day is to strengthen someone (self-included) in some area. Let's Live in Purpose so we can Win on Purpose!

About online counseling

Online counseling allows you to receive care from an online mental health practitioner via phone, video chat, or instant messaging. It is convenient for those who may have trouble getting to or would prefer not to have in-person therapy appointments. Ranging from $35 to $80 per week, online counseling is generally more affordable than in-person counseling. A study by researchers at University of California, Berkeley found that online counseling can be just as effective as face-to-face therapy while being more convenient, affordable, and accessible.

Stephen is amazing. The issues I’m dealing with right now, I feel like he understands more than anyone in my own personal life that I’d confide in. There have been times when I knew what the message he was going for already was, but then he rephrases it and simplifies it in a way that makes sense and just hits different. I’m so glad we were matched and no matter how inconsistent I am with utilizing this service, I plan on keeping it anyways because he’s too good and too important to lose

Stephen did an excellent job in coaching me through a difficult discussion that I need to have with my parents. He listened to what I had to say, asked the right questions, and made sure I had created some type of action plan to move forward. I would highly recommend Stephen to others...a true professional.

I was worried that my therapist would be too CLINICAL. That was not the case. Very laid back. And that is what I needed . I don't want a "how does that make you feel" I want a "so here is the plan of action"
