"Social work is my passion and it has been for over 17 years. I have worked in a variety of settings using different treatment modalities. As I began working in the field as a substance abuse counselor, I recognized how great the need was in mental health and the challenges many individuals have faced as a result of trauma. My experience in providing years of group therapy helped me realize that there were many individuals who could benefit from therapy in a smaller context on an individual level.
My experience includes corrections, community mental health, and working with active-duty service members and veterans. I earned my Bachelor of Science Degree in Social Work at Longwood University in 2003 and Master of Science Degree in Social Work from Capella University in 2019."
