STRONG – This March, staff at Strong Area Health Center are happy to welcome Cinder Savage, Licensed Clinical Social Worker, to the team.

Cinder earned her Master’s degree in Social Work from the University of New England. Previously, she earned her Bachelor’s degree in Rehabilitation from the University of Maine at Farmington. Cinder brings a wealth of experience in caring for patients of all ages. She returns to HealthReach after having worked at our Madison health center.

Cinder shares, “I deeply believe in the dignity and worth of every human being. People want to feel well and to be happy – more and more, we are realizing these both take action and commitment to attain. I believe people have their own answers, but it is incredibly hard to think, learn, manage, or resolve the problems when living inside the issues in this busy world. Therapy can provide an objective view that helps to clarify, organize, and create goals to get you where you want to be.”

Cinder joins physician Ann Schwink; physician assistant Madelyn Besse; and nurse practitioners Jason Caudell and Nichole Yeaton. Our clinicians offer medical and behavioral health services for patients of all ages and from all walks of life.
