Volunteer work began age 15, at which time my decision was made to ultimately become a social worker. SUNY graduate, followed by two years as childcare worker in a large children’s home. Then attended Columbia University on grants and scholarship. Worked steadily with a five year gap when my children were three and six. Homecare in medical social work (VNA) for total 14 years. Returned to behavioral health 17 years ago. My passion is relapse prevention from all “problem behaviors” including substance abuse and self-harm. Experience in group, individual and family work.
