I currently provide clinical and forensic services to clients who are incarcerated where I work as a Mental Health Consultant and have over 15 years of experience in the mental health field. I have worked with clients in a variety of settings which include Cascadia Behavioral Healthcare/ PSRB, the Department of Youth Services, New York City Criminal Court, Peace Health Emergency Department, MacLaren Youth Correctional Facility and at the Federal Defenders of New York where I also provided mitigation and re-entry services on behalf of my clients.
I am a Licensed Master Social Worker (LMSW) and currently hold my Clinical Social Work Associate (CSWA) certificate in the State of Oregon. I received my Master’s Degree in Social Work from Columbia University with a minor in Law and my Bachelor’s Degree in Literature from Chapman University. As a result of my diverse background in film and literature studies I value diversity and creativity with my therapeutic process.
I am a certified Yoga Instructor through My Vinyasa Practice and in November I will be attending a 500 hour yoga teacher training through Awakening Yoga Academy in Bali.
