Social Worker-Clinical

Biography

I was inspired to pursue a career in mental health by watching people I knew make amazing changes in their lives with the help of a mental health professional. I wanted to be part of something that amazing. Social Work allows me the privilege of walking with others on a profound and personal journey toward wellness and recovery.

I started out as a crisis hotline volunteer in 1987 while pursuing my Bachelor’s degree in Social Work. I completed my Master’s degree in Social Work in 1998. I have worked in many capacities from case management, elder care, crisis work with children, individual therapy with adults, children and families and eventually into a management role.

My strength is working with families and children and providing clinical supervision to clinicians, clinicians in training and new clinicians just entering the field. I enjoy watching clients access their inner resources to move forward in their lives, just as much as I enjoy watching clinicians grow in their skills, confidence and commitment to the profession. I believe it is my responsibility to uphold the Social Work code of ethics and to provide the highest quality, evidence-based care available.
