Alia Berry

Alia  Berry MSW LSW, as a licensed community-based social worker, has over 20  years experience working with ages 0 to 60 in a variety of settings from  daycares to schools to group homes to correctional facilities.

Alia  brings a macro level skill set with the community’s micro-level needs in  mind as she continues to keep the pulse on the people through  graduations and baby showers but also unfortunately at funerals and  sentencing hearings...goal setting on the block and hugs at a red light;  crisis interventionist, mentor and sidewalk case manager. Yet  formalizing ideas/visions and organic processes, ensuring the  effectiveness of programs and collecting data to help shape strategy is a  strength of hers. Alia has a history in leadership roles where she  built innovative, evidence-based programming, designed systems for  sustainability and trained service providers for implementation and team  building with a special focus on ‘Heal the Healers’ support.

As an  LSW, Alia is also dually certified in Elementary/Special Education, a  certified School Social Worker, holds a Masters Degree which focused on  Violence Against Women and Children with a concentration on Perpetrators  and is a certified Grief & Loss Specialist. Her professional focus  is in community-based violence intervention and prevention, serving  individuals before, during and after incarceration through a variety of  healing modalities which are trauma-informed and seek to address the  mental health roots which manifest into violent behavior.

As  principal consultant of Seeds & Berries, Alia provides capacity  building support, national training and direct clinical services in  schools, nonprofits and the government sector.
