Cassey earned her undergraduate degree in Sociology from the University of Florida, where she had the opportunity to develop skills essential for the mental health field, including learning how to identify and solve problems and relate to others. Cassey believes this to be the “open door” that led her in the direction of choosing a career that would allow her the opportunity to provide quality therapeutic care to those who need it.
Cassey began as a volunteer in an outpatient, community setting where she encouraged the development and implementation of social and independent living skills. She then transitioned to become a mental health technician in an inpatient setting, running groups and providing support to the milieu consisting of addiction and psychiatric disorders. These opportunities propelled her to advance in my studies as a mental health professional.
Cassey earned her master’s degree in Mental Health Counseling from Nova Southeastern University. Upon earning her degree, Cassey began a career as a mental health counselor at a highly recognized residential eating disorders facility. She then became a clinical therapist at Wellington Retreat, where she feels enthusiastic about the services she can provide as part of such a reputable facility.
