More About Me

About Me

I recently passed the exam to become an ACE Personal Trainer. In addition to working with mental health and addictions, I now can help clients reach their health and fitness goals. I am a Licensed Independent Social Worker-Supervisor (LISW-S) and Licensed Independent Chemical Dependency Counselor-Clinical Supervisor (LICDC-CS). I have advanced training in cognitive therapy through the Cleveland Center for Cognitive Therapy. I attended the 3 day MINT TNT in May 2008 with William Miller, PhD and Theresa Moyers, PhD.  I provided social work services in a state psychiatric hospital facilitating groups on the unit and treatment mall.  I have trained fellow staff members to use MI more effectively in monthly sessions.  I have presented for the National Association of Social Workers in Toledo, Cincinnati, and at the state conference in Columbus.
