A Little Bit About Andrea...
WHY DID YOU WANT TO WORK WITH INSPIRED?
I was drawn to Inspired because of the warm energy and feeling like I could be a part of a great team of clinicians who support each other and have fun.
DBT Training through Behavioral Tech
LICSW (Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker) in Massachusetts
RELEVANT PREVIOUS EXPERIENCE:
During my undergrad I interned as a therapeutic mentor for kids and tweens and then in grad school interned as a school social worker in a high school (the same high school the movie Remember the Titans is based off of). After graduating I worked in psychiatric hospitals with young children, adolescents as well as adults. This has allowed me to work along side many other professions including psychiatrists, nurses, occupational therapist, art therapists and many more.
RANDOM FUN FACTS ABOUT ME:
I spent 2 weeks in the Adirondack Mountains w/o electricity or plumbing
I love to eat
Fall is my favorite season
Raise a happy/healthy family
Waking up early
Best Reason to be Happy:
My faith in God and my sweet little family.
Best Legal Route to Joy:
Doing something for someone else...or eating ice cream
I actually don’t like trying new things (except for food) so am always happy when I do (with encouragement from my husband)
I moved to VA after college- I didn’t want to move/ wanted to live with my parents literally forever but my boyfriend (now husband) was moving there. I expected I’d be back in MA under a month since I had no job/ place to live but was able to find both and lived there for 3 years/ grew so much and became much more independent.
It’s a good day to have a good day
Best Under-Appreciated Skill:
Being a good listener
