I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) and a Master CASAC-G with a Master of Social Work degree from the Greater Rochester Area Collaborative MSW Program. I also possess a bachelor’s degree in Business Management and Applied Economics from Cornell University.

The following offers a few highlights of my qualifications:

Throughout my career, teaching and training have been my passion. I have been an Adjunct Professor in the Human Services department of Monroe Community College for 12 years. I also teach for the Social Work department at Nazareth College and SUNY Brockport for the last 6 years. I have extensive experience in developing and implementing curriculum, preparing daily lessons, assignments, and completing grading duties. I also, collaborate with area colleges on internships and field placements.

I have 24 years of progressive experience in the Social Work and Addiction Field. As the Associate Director of the Integrated Clinic-G Substance Use, I provide supervision to a team of 18 therapists and 2 peer advocates. At the integrated clinic we provide a client centered, trauma informed, cultural humility approach to mental health and substance use treatment. During my career I have provided treatment for clients with diverse backgrounds, abilities, and special needs.

As the Associate Director, it is my responsibility to complete monthly utilization chart reviews to guarantee compliance. Daily, I am accountable for verifying that our clinical programs meet funder, local, state requirements and code mandates. I lead a team that is involved in the development and evaluation of programs that will help improve the quality of care for clients and families. I facilitate weekly staff individual and group supervision.
