Jerome is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with Avance Psychiatry in Raleigh, North Carolina. Jerome earned an undergraduate in Social Work degree from Oakwood University and a graduate degree from Savannah State University in Clinical Social Work.
Jerome believes each person deserves to be heard and feel supported. He has always been intrigued by the mind’s pathways and what drives our being. As a provider, Jerome helps patients develop the ability to discern who they are from issues they have experienced to prepare for the future, meet their goals, and rediscover their strengths. Jerome knows that overwhelm can often be instantaneous and confusing. Utilizing an ecological perspective within the Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) model, Jerome helps patients understand the importance of strong support networks and how to use sustainable tools to overcome challenges.
Also, Jerome draws from other techniques, including Solution Focused Therapy, Motivational Interviewing techniques, and systems-based therapy. Jerome also appreciates the author David Cuschieri’s statement, “The Mind is a powerful force. It can enslave us or empower us. It can plunge us to the depths of misery or take us to the heights of ecstasy. Learn to use the power wisely.”
In his spare time, Jerome enjoys a whole gambit of self-care initiatives, including spending time in nature, at the beach, and exploring museums and other happy places with friends and family.
