Experience and Training
I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker. My many years as a Medical Social Worker have evolved into a specialty of helping people cope with medical conditions and subsequent feelings of loss and lack of control.
I am a graduate of Syracuse University School of Social Work with a BSW and an MSW. My MSW had a concentration in Family Systems and Mental Health. I am an LCSW in Connecticut, LMSW in New York, and recognized to practice independently by the Academy of Certified Social Workers.
My professional affiliations include: The National Association of Social Workers, The Academy of Certified Social Workers, RESOLVE, The American Fertility Association, The American Society for Reproductive Medicine (Mental Health Group) and The Greater Bridgeport Elder Service Council.
I routinely attend post graduate seminars and conferences in my field to maintain up to date skills and knowledge. In addition, I have spoken professionally at workshops and seminars (See list of professionally speaking)
I have worked in a variety of settings including my own private practice and geriatric care management practice, Montefiore Hospital Adult Day Care Program, The Jewish Home for the Elderly, Visiting Nurse Services of Connecticut, and The Bronx Jewish Community Council.
