Licensed Clinical Social Worker, Graduate Research Assistant, and PhD Student in Cleveland, Tennessee
I'm a social worker (LCSW), clinician, and researcher. I have worked in the community mental health field for over a decade in a variety of roles such as group home manager, case manager, outpatient therapist, and clinical supervisor. Currently, I am working towards a PhD in Social Work.
I know that my efforts as a clinical social worker have helped individuals and families overcome disparities related to mental health, poverty, sexual orientation, race/ethnicity, gender, and education. I am proud to be a social worker, because I know that our profession stands up for and empowers the oppressed and denigrated. As long as disparities exist in our world, social work will have a voice.
