Education and Industry Experience:
I have a Master’s Degree in Social Work from Rutgers Graduate School of Social Work. I have been working as a social worker 6 years, in different treatment settings such as community mental health & psychiatric emergency services. Much of my work has been with individuals who experience mental health & co-occurring disorders, anxiety, depression, interpersonal/relationship issues, or are managing life transitions and stressors.
What does your day to day look like within your role:
A day as a social worker includes offering therapy to individuals over 12, meeting with new moms to offer support and resources that may be helpful to them, and referral of resources to those who may have community needs.
