Prior to joining the Center, she served as program director for a local faith-based non-profit organization that assisted children with various needs. She also coordinated the organization’s volunteer program. Katrice has helped local charity foundations organizing youth empowerment programs and events to promote excellence in academics and athletics.

Originally from Portsmouth, Virginia, Katrice is a life-long resident of Hampton Roads and currently lives in Virginia Beach with her husband and children. She received her bachelor’s degree in Business Administration from Strayer University and plans to attend Old Dominion University next year to obtain her master’s degree.

Rachel Baines, M.S.W., Substance Abuse Counselor

One of the newest members of the Center’s team, Rachel joined The Barry Robinson Center in 2017. Since 2008, she has been working in the mental health field, beginning her career by providing therapy to at-risk youth and their families in their homes.

Prior to coming to the Center, Rachel worked at Newport News Adult Drug Court conducting assessments and facilitating groups and individual therapy to clients suffering from addiction. During this time, she began receiving clinical supervision towards certification as a Substance Abuse Counselor, and plans to become a Licensed Clinical Social Worker.

Rachel is from Chesapeake, Virginia, and received her bachelor’s degree in Sociology with a minor in Criminal Justice and a master’s degree in Social Work from Norfolk State University.

Deborah S. Thomasson, Program Manager for Community Based Services

Deb’s new role as with the Center began in early 2017 assisting with program development. Currently, she is responsible for the coordination of daily operations for the Center’s Community Based Services.

A member of the team since 2011, Deb joined the Center as office manager of the previous Community Living Programs, which included foster care, independent living programs and group homes. In 2013, she received a promotion to admissions manager for the Center’s residential treatment program where she successfully managed admissions and office functions with impeccable customer service skills.

Besides her familiarity with all of the Center’s programs, Deb’s commitment to providing excellent customer service to referral sources and clients and her strong organizational skills uniquely equips her to provide dynamic support for the program.
