Thank you for taking the time in reading my profile. I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker who has an Advanced Certification in Hospice and Palliative Care. I also have a Master's Degree in Rehabilitation Counseling. Over the years, I have worked with domestic violence victims as well as individuals diagnosed with all types of disabilities helping them cope with their illness and manage life stressors. For the past 29 years , my focus has been working closely with adults, children and families diagnosed with cancer and supporting them through counseling and linking them with relevant resources as they progress through treatment. This includes counseling with caregivers, how to help and support their children, self image, loss of control issues, and compassion fatigue for the caregiver. My work has also focused on end of life care and how to help the patient and their family at this precious time. I have also provide intensive bereavement counseling services to grievers who have lost their loved ones to unanticipated tragedies and helped them to process and move forward in their grief healing journey.

I lucked out with Nina. She was my first match and it was a match made in heaven! She listens to every concern and works through them with you. If her interpretation differs from yours, she is fully open to discussing it and understand the issue on the same level. I highly recommend Nina to anyone seeking to understand themselves or life events.
