About Me

His experience has given him wonderful opportunities in direct services at the clinical level, program administration, research, teaching academically and training.

As a social worker he recognizes the importance of taking an individualistic look at how those issues affect each of us.

He's had the opportunity to utilize MI in clinical settings as well as in his various supervisory positions.
