Overview

I am a Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker with decades of experience in Community Behavioral Health. I am an Ethnic Minority born in Cameroon and a Geriatric Mental Health Specialist. Completed education at the University of Washington Graduate School of Social Work. Managed an Older Adult Program providing geriatric Mental Health Services to 23 Skilled Nursing Facilities in King County. Conducted relationship seminars for Christian Church Congregations in Washington, Nevada, and California. Launched "Amazing Counseling and Consultation" in July 2022 to bring years of clinical and leadership experience to a wider audience.



I believe challenging behavior is a display of unmet needs, whether physical, neurological, psychological, or spiritual. My approach is to engage with empathy and join individuals on their unique life journey towards emotional healing. I facilitate the process towards healing solutions with the client as an active participant.
