My Approach

I have been a social worker for more than 28 years. I began practicing at the undergraduate level by working with clients who suffered from major mental health diagnoses and who needed assistance living independently in the community. I eventually moved into Health Care Social Work and Aging for my Master's Degree and have enjoyed working with the aged population. I am never amazed by how much wisdom and knowledge there is in the lives of this population but there is also a sadness and a struggle as health and memory decline.

 

Family members also struggle with the when and where of what their family member needs as well as guilt and at times shame for either moving their loved one into a more restricted facility because this is what was needed or by failing to do so, something has happened. 

It is very difficult to carry these overwhelming emotions through life, but there is hope and I can help. You may realize that managing alone may not be the best or only option.  Working with me in a safe space can allow for you to regain balance, make changes, and move towards a more rewarding and open life.
