LCSW

About Me

I am a licensed clinical social worker since 1977. I have worked in a variety of challenging positions with many different people of varying profiles. Perhaps the most challenging clinical work that I have done is with sexually, physically and emotionally abused infants, children and adults both male and female. I have also worked in the field of developmental disabilities again from infancy to older adults. In this capacity I worked as a case manager supervisor for every intake case in region 7 of the State of Louisiana. This required that we work with families through an extensive evaluation process, case development and the procurement of required services to address their unique needs.

Very friendly, and understanding. I like her reaching out and checking on me as I feel she is genuinely caring and invested in my improvement. I feel we have been able to connect in ways I did not initially think about.

Work with me!
