The Resume Stuff

Licensed Independent Social Worker

OK, here are the creds:  I obtained a BA in Sociology and Criminal Justice from Westminster College in 1999.  I began working in a community mental health agency while pursuing a Master of Social Work degree at the University of Pittsburgh.  I obtained an MSW in 2004, and continued providing individual and family therapy, as well as behavioral consulting. I provided services in the office, homes, schools, and the community while under supervision to obtain my license to practice independently. 

Board Certified Behavior Analyst

Because I found it very satisfying to assist parents with understanding and changing their child's maladaptive behaviors, I pursued further certification in this area.  I completed coursework for the Interventions in Autism certificate from the University of Massachusetts, accrued supervised experience hours, and passed the exam to become a Board Certified Behavior Analyst in 2015.

 

The academics and supervised experiences provided a great foundation, but I recognize that you are the expert with your child.  I honor this expertise while sharing my own to become partners in the process.
