Jasmine Savio, LCSW will present regarding working with combat veterans and survivors of military sexual trauma.
Jasmine Savio received a BA in Psychology from Northern Arizona University before moving back to her hometown of New York to take a job as a Domestic Violence Counselor with the NYPD. Struck by the impact of substance abuse on the families she worked with she went on to get a Certificate in Substance Abuse Counseling from the New School for Social Research. While working as a counselor in a Methadone Maintenance Program Jasmine was inspired to go on to get an advanced degree and sought a Masters program with an emphasis on trauma informed treatment relocating to Maine to attend the University of New England.
Jasmine received her Masters in Social Work in 2003 and continued her work as a Mobile Crisis Clinician while working towards her licensure. Jasmine transitioned to the Longcreek Youth Development Center as the clinician for the detained girls and remained there through 2011. To broaden her clinical skills she opened a private practice in 2009 and became a volunteer therapist for Give an Hour which is how she became committed to working with combat Veterans.
Jasmine currently works at the Lewiston Vet Center where she considers it an honor to work with combat veterans and survivors of military sexual trauma who are able to utilize their resilience to work towards healing and readjusting to coming home.
