Coalition Honors Kristin Larsen

December 13, 2013

Congratulations to Kristin Larsen, Program Supervisor in Chenango County, for being recognized as the 2013 Employee of the Year Award for Liberty Resources, Inc. by the New York State’s Coalition for Children’s Mental Health Services.

Kristin has been a dedicated member of the Liberty Resources team since July 2001.  Initially working as a therapist in the Chenango County Placement Diversion Program, Kristin quickly advanced into a leadership role as a Program Supervisor.  As a Program Supervisor, Kristin has proven to have the qualities to be an effective leader evident by her ability to build and maintain a strong team, promote professional growth and development, and maintain strong relationships with stakeholders.  Kristin is an exemplary Licensed Clinical Social Worker who is committed to service excellence.  Kristin is a strong advocate for system improvement and resources development so individuals and families in the community are able to access services they need.  Clinically, Kristin has a wide range of experience and expertise in assessment and treatment interventions which she draws from to successfully engage with individuals and families with complex needs.

Kristin is hard working and compassionate.  She goes above and beyond to ensure the families she serves and the staff she supervises are supported and equipped with the tools for success.  Kristin’s hard work and unwavering commitment makes her an excellent candidate for this award.  She makes a difference in the lives of others!  I would be remiss not to mention her ability to do all of this and still have the time and energy to spend quality time with one of her “best friends”, Luka-her black Lab.
