THE REY OF LIGHT
Release. Revive. Reydiate
As creator and founder of The Rey Of Light M.W.S, one of my purposes is mental health awareness in the black community. I want to shed light on topics that aren't always discussed. I want to open the door for more conversations & normalcy around mental health in the black community. I want my platform to be educational, informational and a safe space for Black individuals.
“You must be unintimidated by your own thoughts because if you write with someone looking over your shoulder, you'll never write.”
A BIT ABOUT ME
Starting from within to Reydiate my best self.
I am a licensed social worker in NJ with a Bachelors degree in African American Studies and a Masters degree in Clinical Social Work. During my career in various social service settings I have served in many roles. I was an outreach worker in the Greater Newark area providing case management & support services for youth and adults. I have also worked as a case manager for a family resource center providing individual & family counseling. Additionally, I provided Nurturing & Parenting classes for at risk mothers. Currently, I am serving as a psychotherapist in a group practice setting. I provide individual counseling to those ready to start their healing journey. Through The Rey of Light, I am aiming to display real individuals & real experiences through discussion, vlogs & presentations. By highlighting the everyday person, including myself I hope to challenge the stigma of mental health in the black community.
