The University of Nebraska at Omaha is where I earned my Masters Degree in Social Work in 2002. Since that time, I have worked with clients in a variety of settings to include residential care, partial hospitalization and private practice. Prior to relocating to Georgia, I was also employed as an Adjunct Professor at the University of South Carolina in the College of Social Work.
My experience began in helping survivors of childhood sexual, physical and emotional abuse. I have since expanded my skills and interests to addressing combat trauma. I am a member of the National Association of Social Workers and the International Association of Trauma Professionals. I am a registered provider with the Star Behavioral Health Providers Program for veterans, service members, and their families. I am trained in Cognitive Processing Therapy (CBT) and Accelerated Resolution Therapy (ART). I also treat issues related to depression, anxiety and grief.
I believe in assisting clients in moving through the process of transitioning from living in survival mode to actively living their day to day life.
