Dear clients,

I am a licensed clinical social worker with a passion for helping individuals, couples and families maneuver the stresses, challenges, hurts and traumas of everyday life. I am an African-American, faith-based woman, who has a passion for helping other minority men, woman, couples and families maneuver life challenges.

My counseling philosophy is that you are the expert of your own life. My role is to guide and support you in building the skills and confidence necessary to live your best life. I meet each client where you are and help you build on your strengths and resources. My assessments and evaluations are comprehensive bio-psychosocial-spiritual, in nature. I incorporate faith-based principles that you request and find meaningful to you.

I have over 7 years of experience helping clients with depression, anxiety, relationship issues and various other mental health and life challenges. My expertise allows you to develop your own perspective of problem solving and will empower you to make the changes needed in order to accomplish your goals. Due to limits on availability, I am able to offer the first session via video only. Following the first session, I am able to provide ongoing phone sessions only. I look forward to working with you.

Written by Y.O. on Jul 01, 2021 after counseling with Rita for 2 weeks

Ms. Rita has been purposeful & strategic in mapping out a plan for my success. I feel validated but challenged not to stay stuck.
She provides guidance and practical steps in helping me move forward but does not rush me in my process.
I'm glad that she was assigned to my mental health care.
