I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with a Master's degree in Social Work from University of Missouri-Columbia. My career in the field of social services began over 18 years ago. I have experience working with adults and children with Autism Spectrum Disorders and their families, end of life care, and medical social services. For the past 15 years my primary focus has been supporting hospice patients and their support systems during the end of life journey, bereavement support and providing grief counseling to all age groups.
I believe that mental health is just as important as physical health. Identifying a need or desire for mental health support is a STRENGTH! Each day I work hard to diminish the negative stigma surrounding mental health services. I am excited to work with you on your journey!
