“I have a passion for working with individuals who need nonjudgmental support and encouragement to achieve their goals; women and children, the homeless population and emerging social workers in particular. Equally important to me is dispelling the negative connotation associated with mental health care within communities of color. We all need someone to talk to at some point in our lives. It is my desire to be a change agent and do my part to make this world a better place.” -Trevaughn Davis-Neal
