I consider my current job a privilege because every day I am trusted with access to the personal lives of others. It has always been my passion to help the underserved and diverse populations, and to assist people in changing their lives for the better. Here at RevCore, I can see firsthand the positive changes that people can make in their daily lives, which serves as a motivation for me. Being a social worker can be difficult at times, however, seeing the joy on my client’s faces when they see a glimmer of hope where they previously had none, makes it all worth it. All of my clients are unique and have overcome great obstacles. Witnessing the positive changes they make in their lives, and being part of that growth, is rewarding and validates why I chose this profession very early on in my life.
I am the Clinical Director of the Behavioral Services Program at RevCore Recovery Center, and I’m a Licensed Clinical Social Worker. I received my Master’s Degree from the Silberman School of Social Work at Hunter College in 2010 and my Bachelor of Arts in Forensic Psychology from John Jay College of Criminal Justice in 2008, with a minor in Addiction Studies. I have extensive experience working with individuals in recovery from chemical and other addictions, and have also worked with underserved families, and abused and neglected children. I am certified in conducting the Static-99R, Stable and Acute 2007 assessment tools, which I utilize for individuals mandated to sex offender treatment. These tools help assess the risk and intensity of sex offender treatment offered to each client. I also conduct a female sex offender treatment group, which is a strong interest of mine. I’ve been employed with RevCore since 2012, and in addition to my clinical work, I am an adjunct professor at Long Island University in Brooklyn. I am also an active participant in the Association for the Treatment of Sexual Abusers (ATSA) annual conference. I can be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org for any inquiries.
