Ms. Alethea M Gard'ner

Education & Experience

I graduated from the University of GA in 2000 with my MSW. Following graduation, I worked in the forensic field on defense teams with major felony cases performing assessments, providing counseling, and advocating in Superior Court with written and verbal memorandums. I then began working with treatment courts; Felony Drug Court and Veterans' Treatment Court as a clinician and as the clinical supervisor. After relocating to CA in 2015, I opened my own practice.
