Dawn Meadows, MSW, ASW, Outpatient Primary Therapist
Dawn joined the New Directions for Women team over five years ago, starting her work in the Human Resources and Quality Improvement departments. Her experience facilitating a successful CARF survey prepared her clinically as she also completed her Masters in Social Work from Cal State Long Beach.
