MORE

I am a clinical social worker providing therapy to criminal justice populations in correctional facilities. My current focus is substance use treatment. I have worked at both federal prisons and county jails with both female and male inmates. I practice mainly relational and cognitive behavioral therapy through a group treatment modality.

Through my experience, I understand the challenges and benefits of working within large systems, be it corrections, healthcare, education, etc. I also have learned the important role that social workers play in interdisciplinary practices.
