I enjoy collaborating with therapists in strengthening their work with individual and families utilizing strengths based and solution focused modalities. I have extensive experience around trauma and crisis work. I graduated from the University of Denver with my Masters in Social Work with a concentration in family studies and trauma and obtained my LCSW in 2012. I have been providing clinical supervision for the past 3 years to master level clinicians.
After obtaining my MSW in 2010 I worked for 4 years with the Department of Human Services as a caseworker specifically working with juvenile sex offenders and sex abuse victims. I also have history of working in the inpatient behavioral health hospital setting completing level of care assessments and managing crisis in the form of suicidality and psychosis. I also have experience working in the community mental health setting completing evaluations for DHS, CYMHTA (Child Youth, Mental Health Treatment Act) and hospital step down assessments. I am very passionate about working in the mental health field, specifically those who are struggling with severe and persistent mental illness and those struggling with ongoing suicidality.
I look forward to collaborating with supervisees in offering the best possible therapy to individual and families in our community. I am able to offer clinical supervision to clinicians working towards their LPC, LCSW and LMFT.
