Assistant Clinical Professor of Social Work; Family-Based Recovery Substance Use Consultant



Amy has provided support and clinical care to adults, children and families in greater New Haven since 1998.  Throughout her career, she has worked with underserved patients of a community healthcare center; adults with HIV/AIDS; parents with substance use challenges; and women in carceral settings.  The connecting theme across these sectors, and which draws Amy to Social Work and community services is the transformative impact of secure relationships.   As an Assistant Clinical Professor of Social Work at the Child Study Center Amy provides consultation, training and model assurance services to a network of teams who deliver in-home substance use treatment and relational parent-child support, across the state of Connecticut, and within other municipalities in the United States and Canada.
