After graduating from UConn with a BA in psychology, Teesha took a year off to decide what she wanted to do with her career. In that time, she explored several options and ultimately fell in love with social work. She returned to UConn and earned her Master of Social Work. Teesha has a self-proclaimed passion for residential substance use disorder (SUD) programs. She believes in the necessity of stabilization and support during the early stages of recovery. Teesha’s care and commitment has led her to build SUD programs through evidence-based curriculums and different tracks for different populations. In addition to her experience with residential SUD programs, she’s been a positive force in a variety of settings and capacities – including community work, outpatient services, medical units, as well as inpatient psych and emergency services.
