Presenter: Kristin’s journey in the mental health field began over 15 years ago working in a residential treatment program while pursuing her Bachelor of Science Degree in Psychology at the State University of New York at Brockport. Upon receiving her Masters Degree in Social Work from the State University of New York at Buffalo, Kristin became the Lead Therapist at a community mental health center. She later transitioned into the role of Division Director, overseeing three community mental health centers. During this time Kristin developed a crisis service program, served as a member of the crisis response team, participated on several community boards and became a trainer for the mental health center staff and community. Kristin’s love for training and sharing her knowledge with others led her to pursue a teaching position at Iowa Wesleyan University. While Kristin enjoyed teaching social work and psychology courses, she missed providing direct care and was inspired to open her own practice to serve those in her community. Kristin currently works full time at her practice Compassionate Counseling, LLC located in Fairfield, IA while continuing to provide mental health consultation for Iowa Wesleyan University.

NASW-IA has determined that this program meets the criteria of the Iowa Board of Social Work for 6.0 hours of continuing education for Licensed Independent Social Workers who will be performing clinical supervision for LMSWs working to become LISWs.
