Licensed Clinical Social Worker/Certified Mindfulness Informed Clinician

I am a native of Buffalo, New York and relocated to North Carolina in 2017. I'm a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) and Certified Mindfulness Informed Clinician (CMC-1), as well as the owner of MBS Therapeutics, PLLC.  I received a Bachelor of Arts in Human Service with a concentration in Counseling and Master of Social Work from State University of New York at Buffalo.

I have worked intensely with children and adults for over12 years while conducting individual, family, and group therapy sessions. Throughout my career, I've worked in the preventive and educational sector.  My job roles included working within the foster care system, adoption, and the school system as a school social worker. I have extensive history in parenting and co-parenting workshops as a parent facilitator for more than 17 years.

My approach specializes in self-esteem & confidence building, anxiety disorders, depressive disorders, abandonment, domestic violence, trauma, abuse, at-risk youth, and family conflict.


Assisting people through therapy is my passion and finding satisfaction in working with people who are just trying to figure it all out. Life can be challenging at times and therapy may be an option to get through it.
