Jerrica Raspberry Lawson, LICSW


Jerrica has worked in the human services and social work fields for over ten years. Within that time frame, Jerrica has witnessed many instances of intense human suffering and resolved that she would make it her life’s mission to help people cope.

Jerrica received a Bachelor’s in Psychology from Northeastern University, and during her coursework in Criminal Justice and African American studies, she learned more about the specific mental health needs of BIPOC communities. With her passion for hope and healing fully ignited, Jerrica then pursued a Master’s in Social Work at Simmons College (now Simmons University), graduating in 2017. There Jerrica sharpened both her social justice and clinical skills, working in an array of settings.

Jerrica also increased her leadership skills during this time, serving as the Simmons Chapter President of the Association of Black Social Workers. Jerrica will begin the Doctor of Philosophy in Social Work program at Simmons University, where her focus of study will be centered around healing the trauma that affects Black bodies. During her downtime, Jerrica enjoys baking desserts, socializing with friends, and knitting.
