What brought you to ARE?
My career as a Licensed Clinical Social Worker has led me in many directions before landing here at ARE, Inc. While in graduate school I worked in California with Native American children in foster care and in a child and family counseling center. After I returned to VA, I provided home-based counseling for families in NOVA and Washington, D.C.. I managed a program for dually-diagnosed veterans in Maryland for a year, which then led me to provide family counseling on contract to active military families, both domestically and abroad for the last 5 and 1/2 years. Although the travel was enjoyable, I was delighted to find an opportunity to work with a well-established organization locally serving a population truly in need. I joined ARE in December 2015 as the Clinical Supervisor. I am honored to become a part of this dedicated team, and am excited to put my enthusiasm for holistic health into play with clientele.
