The NPI Mission
Our goal is to provide the best care to consumers that suffer from an array of issues and mental impairments and develop a community system of support and care. As leaders in the mental health field, we want to emphasize that the quality of service is just as important as the positive outcomes we hope to achieve in our consumers’ lives.
We only hope to embody the ideals and statutes associated with service while creating access to community resources for our consumers.
“All things in this world must be seen with youthful, hopeful All things in this world must be seen with youthful, hopeful eyes”
~~ Henry David Thoreau

Hebrews 6:10 informs us that God will not forget the work and love we’ve shown Him as we help people and continue to help them. As a little girl, and even through the end of her college matriculation, Sikena was never completely sure about which profession she would pursue. However, she did know that whichever career path she chose to undertake would allow her to advocate for oppressed and underserved populations of our community. Upon graduating from North Carolina Central University, Sikena began working in the behavioral health field as an administrative director and direct care service provider. Assisting the executives of this organization with preparation for national accreditation, state licensure, and audits by the local management entity, it was this position that afforded Sikena the knowledge, skills, ability, and experience to serve in the capacity as an executive director for New Path Interventions.

As a native of Durham, North Carolina, Shelbia knew at an early age that she had a zest and a passion for helping others. And it stemmed mostly from her upbringing in parochial education institutions where she learned the values of selflessness, giving, faith, charity, and becoming perceptive of others’ needs. For the last 10 years, Shelbia has worked relentlessly to establish a mental health career, working with the child and adult populations. Her professional experiences include studies in the area of drug addiction and person-centered planning. Outside of counseling, Shelbia has also advanced in the administrative realm of mental health, working in the area of agency risk management. Upon partnering with two colleagues, Shelbia is currently one-third of the executive director partnership at New Path Interventions, LLC based in Richmond, Va.
