Erica Velez

Implementation Specialist

I am a Nationally Certified HFW practitioner and Implementation Specialist with the NC HFW Training Program. I received a bachelor’s degree in psychology at the New York State University of New Paltz and a master’s degree in Social Work from Adelphi University of New York. I have been working in the field of Mental Health for over 10 years with youth, adults and families and have had the privilege of implementing High Fidelity Wraparound throughout my career. I also have had experience in direct care and leadership roles for therapeutic residential programs, community-based programs, and individual therapy for children and adults. I believe that it is important that our work be motivated by ensuring empowerment, independence, and sustainability for youth and families.
