What was your path to becoming a therapist?
Since 1992, I have worked in the field of social work. I have helped socially-disenfranchised individuals and communities through direct clinical practice and community engagement. Since 2008, I have been in private practice and in 2018, I returned to school for my BSN. I currently work part-time serving chemically-dependent individuals.
