Hi! I'm Cierra, Licensed Clinical Social Worker and owner of Flourishing Futures Counseling. I am a Memphis born and raised PROUD Tiger, graduating from the University of Memphis with both my undergrad and graduate degrees. I would love to say I became a Social Worker by choice but I genuinely believe the profession chose me first. I had zero desire to be a social worker because Family Law was my dream from a very young age. Well, life happened and long story short, my advisor encouraged me to try an intro to social work course because it sounded more along the lines of what I wanted to do. I absolutely disagreed but years later, I've found myself being more passionate about what I do more than I ever could have dreamed!
Over my career, I've worked in a variety of areas providing social work services. However, I've always maintained a dedication to providing mental health services. For the last 8 years, I've provided therapy to youth and young adults. I specialize in working with individuals struggling with mood disorders, adjustment disorders and general life transitions, including depression, anxiety, stress, work, relationships and more. I've been trained in utilizing Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Motivational Interviewing and other evidence based treatment modalities. I am SUPER passionate about mental health and believe it should be a priority just as much as your physical health.
My work over the last few years has been rewarding and led to a passion for working with young African American women, specifically in healthy boundary development. Let's be honest: We all struggle with it at some point but do you realize just how much unhealthy or no boundaries impacts our daily lives? Let's talk about it!
Thank you for stopping by and I hope to work with you soon!
Flourishing Futures is now a fully virtual practice! However, we are NOT accepting new clients for individual therapy sessions at this time. We are accepting appointments for mental health consultation services for companies/organizations and social workers seeking clinical supervision services. Thank you!
