Our Leadership

Regional VP, NOVA Community-based Services

I have worked for the amazing NCG family since 2000.  While employed at NCG I have held numerous hats such as counseling families, and individuals with co-occurring disorders, individual counseling with children, adolescents and adults, as well as court ordered treatment, which has led me to various roles in management. I have a passion for working with individuals with a focus on cognitive behavioral therapy and  family systems. I also enjoy providing licensure supervision of staff to assist in the growth and development of their skills and to assist them in  our mission statement of "improving lives" of those we work with. In my spare time I spend time with family, and friends. I enjoy exercising and believe it is essential in the treatment of mental health. I'm proud of NCG's growth and dedication to our clients, families, and associated professionals and look forward to continue to service our communities!

Program Manager

I graduated from Capella University and earned a masters degree in Human Services with a specialization in Mental Health Counseling in 2012. In 2013, I obtained a Certificate in Contemporary Theory of Compulsive and Addictive Behavior from Capella University and earned a Certificate in Play Therapy in 2015.  I plan to receive my Play Therapy license in July 2018.  I have over 30 years of experience working with children, adolescents, parents, adults, families and groups, including the juvenile justice system with the juvenile drug court program. I utilize a non-directive client-centered approach, which provides a safe and secure environment where individuals can explore strategies to effectively grow and make healthy changes in their lives. My passion is working with children and adolescents with substance use, anxiety, depression, anger, and defiant behaviors. I have worked in a variety of settings, including outpatient and intensive in-home.
