About Me

I received my undergraduate degree from Antioch College and received my master of social service from Bryn Mawr College. I have spent years working in under-served communities and had the honor of helping establish behavioral health integration in primary care in the City of Philadelphia.

I am an advocate of experiential learning, and understand that just as people experience therapy differently, students experience learning differently. I have both taught and provided clinical supervision for several years and am committed to the practice of clinical supervision being an important part of the continued career of a social worker.

Research Interests

My research interests include practice evaluation, integrated care and the treatment of trauma, and social work and chronic health care.
