I earned my Master of Social Work from Boston University in 1999 and then moved to Denver the same year. I have worked in chemical dependency and mental health most of my professional career. I joined the Kaiser Permanente team in 2010.
The chemical dependency treatment services at Kaiser Permanente provide high-quality, affordable care to members seeking treatment for substance use. We also provide services to family members who may be affected by a loved one’s substance use. We have a defined range of care which uses the American Society of Addiction Medicine (ASAM) criteria to inform and direct appropriate care. Group therapy is a principal component of chemical dependency care. Patient treatment goals are designed to meet individual needs while considering the individual’s readiness and motivation to change.
I enjoy living in Colorado and try to take advantage of all this state has to offer.
