Liam is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in the state of Virginia. He earned his Associate of Applied Science degree in Chemical Dependency Counseling from Broome Community College in Binghamton, NY, and his Bachelor of Social Work and Master of Social Work degrees from Arkansas State University in Jonesboro, AR. Before joining OCS, Liam has dedicated his career to working with underserved and historically marginalized populations as both a substance abuse and mental health counselor.
