I have more than 15 years’ experience specializing in forensic psychology and practicing as a Licensed Clinical Psychologist. As a full-time Mental Health Center Treatment Administrator, I am the primary individual responsible for coordinating ACHS’ partnership with the Illinois Department of Juvenile Justice (IDJJ) for the Adler Juvenile Justice Internship (AJJI) (LINK). In this role, I leverage my experience within the juvenile justice system to oversee service delivery, monitor mental health services, and provide essential training and support resources.
As a crisis team leader, I have significant experience managing high-risk situations and mobilizing the resources to address mental health crises with youth. On a regular basis, I collaborate with ACHS leadership to promote contiuous improvement in the internship program.
