Meet the Edison, NJ clinical team!
November 9, 2021
Lindsay Larris, LCSW, LCADC
Hello my name is Lindsay Larris, LCSW, LCADC and I am the Clinic Operations Manager for our North Jersey locations, which currently include Edison, Verona, Sparta and Oradell. I am a licensed clinical social worker as well as a licensed clinical alcohol and drug counselor. After graduating from a special program at the police academy, I realized the psychology courses I studied in college were an even bigger passion of mine. I’ve been working in behavioral health for over 10 years and have worked specifically in substance abuse treatment for most of my career. When not helping others, I enjoy reading a good mystery novel (that’s as far as my detective work goes these days), spending time with friends and family, trying new foods, and going to the beach. I’m thrilled to be part of the Eleanor team and am passionate about helping my community and our members make the most out of their lives.
I’m excited to introduce you to the rest of our Eleanor Health Edison clinical care team!
David Schwartz, MD
Melissa Gorrin, RN, CARN, Nurse Care Manager
My name is Melissa Gorrin. RN, CARN and I come to Eleanor Health as the Nurse Care Manager. I bring with me over three years of experience working with individuals with substance use disorders. I am passionate about helping individuals with substance use disorder live their best lives by delivering a whole-person, personalized approach to treatment and recovery. When I’m not working I enjoy spending time with my family and going to the beach.
Keri McBride, LCSW, Behavioral Health Clinician
Hello! My name is Keri McBride, LCSW, and I’m a Behavioral Health Clinician for Eleanor Health in New Jersey. After working for a Managed Care Organization for the last 2.5 years as a Behavioral Health Care Manager, my desire to return to my true passion of providing direct clinical care could not be avoided any longer. I’m bringing with me over 10 years of individual and group therapy experience in a nonprofit community mental health center (CMHC). During my time with the CMHC, I was fortunate to work in many of their diverse settings, including Substance Use Intensive Outpatient, Early Intervention Support Service, Adult and Adolescent Partial Care, and Residential programs. When I am not working, you can find me enjoying trips to historical places all over the tri-state area or listening to 80s hair bands/watching 80s movies. I am thrilled to be part of the Eleanor family and to have the honor of helping our members live amazing lives.
Samantha Luscombe, Community Recovery Partner (CRP)
Let me introduce myself – I am Sam Luscombe, Yes! Sam-I-am. I am passionate about philanthropy, advocacy, and believe in the potential of all people. I have a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology, with several years of case management experience primarily with individuals experiencing homelessness and individuals with developmental disabilities. I have been in recovery myself for over 8 years and love that I get to help people to live their most awesome lives on a daily basis! I love to try new activities and hobbies and will forever love baking, arts and crafts, and attending classic rock concerts.
Mahima Karki, Member Experience Administrative Specialist (MEAS)
My name is Mahima Karki and I’m the Member Experience Administrative Specialist at Eleanor Health’s Edison location. I have been involved in the healthcare environment for close to 5 years. Currently, I’m working on obtaining my medical assistant certification and look forward to being able to provide further care and support in that role. I’m thankful for the opportunity to be able to provide patient and provider support and be part of a caring and innovative company. I’m a book-worm and find myself attracted to mystery, horror, classic and adventure literature. I also try to make time for playing a few video games whenever possible, from triple A to indie studios, I’m always on the lookout for an interesting game. I’m excited to meet all our members and be a helping hand in their care.
