Training Description:

I obtained my masters in social work in 2014 with a concentration in direct practice in mental health. During this time I was exposed to assessing and diagnosing severe mental illnesses for 8 months during my internship. I then received approximately 4000 hours (about 3 years) of supervised counseling by 2 different supervisors, each being in the field more than 20 years. This training consisted of assessing, diagnosing, and treating a wide range of diagnoses. My work has primarily been in general practice until 2019 when I began seeking further consultation on OCD cases and taking further OCD related trainings.
