I am better known as “Mandy”. I completed my education at St. Louis University in 2008 with a Masters of Social Work and emphasis in health and mental health. Prior to this, I obtained a Bachelor of Social Worker from Southwest Missouri State University and completed this 2004.
I have been a social worker for 13 years. My experience includes behavioral health in both inpatient, intensive outpatient treatment, and community setting. The majority of my experience has been behavioral health treatment in the healthcare setting. I have a strong interest in those who suffer from chronic mental illness to include schizophrenia, dual diagnosis, and addiction. I strongly believe in the integrative approach. My style of therapy often includes motivational interviewing and solution focused.
