Professionally, I have had the opportunity to work with children and families that suffer from mental health and substance abuse issues. My primary goal is always to help the family restore balance in their lives and provide a sense of hope with prevention, early intervention and treatment so that they can have a chance for a successful recovery. I have been a Clinician and an Administrator in various treatment settings ranging from community mental health agencies to the juvenile justice system.
Currently, I have a multi-specialty group practice (LLAVE Consulting Group, LLC) providing mental health and substance abuse services to children, families, adults, veterans and other populations in need of treatment.
Also, I have research specialty areas in the field of mental health, substance abuse and education. Some of my research includes the following:
• Adolescent Females and the Contributing Risk Factors of Substance Abuse,
• Women and Substance Abuse (Ethnic and Gender Disparities in Accessing Treatment),
• Harassment, Intimidation and Bullying in the School Environment,
• and other related topics.
Furthermore, I was recently selected (in August 2012) by NIDAA and SAMSHA to present at the American Psychological Association Conference on my ongoing research project, entitled "Adolescent Females and the Contributing Risk Factors of Substance Abuse".
Academically, I just recently accepted a position as a Professor in the Psychology Department at Rowan University. I graduated from Fairleigh Dickinson University with a Doctorate in Psychology and a MBA in Executive Health Systems. As a part of my academic experience, I had the opportunity to travel abroad to England to assess their healthcare system and complete a comparative analysis of the United States.
Also, I was recently featured on a local network via the Trentonian, entitled "Words 2 Action" (produced by Dr. Kenneth Gordon). The show was about "Effective Parenting-(Are Parents Life Builders or Dream Killers?)". I was also featured on the front page cover of the "Trentonian" (newspaper). In addition, I was also a guest on the network discussing the "African American Woman". Furthermore, I just completed a statewide training on "Women and Substance Abuse" for the New Jersey Drug Courts in April 2013.
In closing, I continue to want to make a difference in our communities that need resources, information and support to be successful. Furthermore, knowledge and information changes an individual, a community and society at large.
