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.
