About Me

Sabrina A. Cotton, LCSW

Sabrina Cotton is a wife, mother, artist, clinical social worker, and officer in the United States Air Force.  Growing up on the south side of Chicago, Illinois, Sabrina witnessed the impact of violence, addiction, and poverty on families—including her own. Those experiences inspired her pursuit of a career in mental health.

Her passion for mental health, community work, and children inspired her to write a children’s book series. The main character is named after her son, Jelani Jason, whose name means “powerful healer.” She hopes the series will educate and empower children to seek help for their invisible wounds.

A proud graduate of Park University, Cotton earned her Bachelor of Science degree in Social Psychology, and she earned a Master of Science degree in Social Work at Saint Leo University. She currently provides mental health treatment to service members and their families.
