Let's Connect (240) 549-6612
Working in Mental Health for over 12 years, I've learned that people are literally trying to put the pieces of their life together just to make it through the day. Being sensitive to this, I've developed my practice model around the following quote, "We're only as strong as our weakest link; therefore, do your best to strengthen someone today!"
My experience includes clinical social work working with diverse groups of children, adolescents, and adults in medical social work, child welfare, mental health/chemical dependency, corrections, HIV/AIDS, and Veteran Affairs.
My goal every day is to strengthen someone (self-included) in some area. Let's Live in Purpose so we can Win on Purpose!
