About US

Social Work Consulting and Counseling, LLC has been operating since 2016. It was founded out of a need for me competent black mental health advocates, therapist, and consultants. It started with one unpaid presentation focused on “We all have mental health, but we all do not have mental illness” from a black resourceful therapist who wanted to dispel myths about mental health and normalize therapy: esp. in the black community. It was history from there, and as a result community members and organizations continued to ask for more! To date, we have provided presentations to government employees, non-profits, universities, and local grass root organizations about how to engage communities of color to “Try Therapy”, racial trauma, systematic racism, ethics, suicide prevention, mental health Level of Care (LOC), impacts of gun violence, and 8 types of self-care. Mental Health Ts was created in 2018 to further our reach to normalize mental health and therapy. 


We strive to provide high-quality, ethical, and culturally responsive services to individuals, families, and communities. We strive to empower our clients to navigate life’s challenges and achieve their goals by utilizing evidence-based practices, promoting social justice and equality, and fostering a safe and supportive environment for all.

OUR VISION is to create a world where every individual has access to compassionate and comprehensive social work consulting and counseling services. We aspire to be leaders in the field, driving innovation and excellence in practice, research, and education. We envision a future where individuals, families, and communities thrive, and social justice and equity are at the forefront of all decision-making processes.
