    Hi everyone! My name is Monica Sonner and I am a case manager at Crisis and Counseling. I mostly work with children, but I do have some parents as well on my caseload. I have been a case manager for almost 3 months now and I have learned so much! Prior to case management I was working as a BHP and Ed-tech III for both in-home support as well as in a preschool setting. I have a BCJ in forensic psychology with a minor in addictions counseling, an MS in psychology, and I am currently working on my PhD in developmental psychology focusing on adolescent development. I am excited to learn more about motivational interviewing and getting to know all of you!

    Hello. I am Becky McMahan. I work as a therapist at Penobscot Community Health Care at a primary care office. I have worked here for over 20yrs. I am working with a lot of primary care providers who are new to prescribing Suboxone as well as working with folks who are in early recovery. I took and MI course this summer and I find that these skills are not only helpful with patients, but also with primary care providers who are reticent to take on folks with SUD. I hope to become more proficient. Nice to meet you all!
