Vonitra Holds a master of arts in counseling from Webster University and a bachelor of arts in business administration from American intercontinental university. She is a certified teacher and school counselor who is currently employed with Marion county public schools.
She has eleven years of experience working with incarcerated adults and their families, eight years as a teacher, and is in her fourth year as a school counselor. While working with students with significant trauma as a Dean, Vonitra realized that her calling was understanding the underlying "why" behind their behavior. Her strong foundation of faith is what guided her to answer the call of a counselor. She also understands the relationship between mental health and academic achievement.
Vonitra believes that early intervention and mental health supports can break generational curses. She desires to break stigmas around mental health, especially with minorities. Vonitra specializes in a Solution Focus approach and uses Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) in order to help individuals reach their full potential and that a relationship with God can bring contentment and joy despite difficult circumstances.
