I am an LCSW who has been a practicing social worker for 14 years in the medical and community settings. My social work background includes foster care, child welfare, adoption, juvenile justice system, medical social work, case management, and individual, family, and couples therapy. I work with diverse populations and backgrounds. I also have experience working with children with varying behaviors and mental health diagnoses. Throughout my career, I have actively pursued an expansion of knowledge and community resources and an increased understanding of clinical and medical social work. I have an outstanding ability to motivate others, advocate for clients and families, provide emotional support and counseling, and handle crises.
