I started as the Team Leader of the First Episode Center nearly 4 years ago and we are proud to say that we have been utilizing Pat Deegan's model as well as OnTrackNY consistently. We focus on whole health and individualized care to every person that crosses our threshold. I am in my final semester of completing my Doctorate in Behavioral Health (DBH) through Arizona State University. I am also pursuing my independent license as a clinical social worker.
I love everything about a person being able to find their own recovery path, their own internal strengths and my passion is to teach this method to others that are pursuing careers in this field. I enjoy the optimism of the youth that we work with as well as providing support to their loved ones!
