Social Work is my second career. I decded to enter the field after my own family experienced the trauma of a loved one with a cooccurring disorder. I know what it feels like when you are suddenly faced with a major life challenge and don't know where to begin or how to talk about it and how to pay for it. Let me ease some of your fears and guide you through the process of facing a difficult challenge and coming through it whole.
My specialty is working with middle class familes who have a loved one suffering from substance use and/or mental health disorders. I can determine if there is financial help available to you and how to access the most appropriate services and treatment both private and public.
Social Workers are known for something rare in this day and age --house calls. I can better and more quickly assess the needs you may not even know you have by meeting with you in the comfort of your own home.
