About Me

I am a Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker in the state of Massachusetts ,and authorized to provide diagnostic and treatment services to adults, 18 years and older, including the aging population, 65 and older. I have held this level of expertise for over 25 years. I am also recognized , and certified to provide these services under the federal Medicare program.
My practice has been primarily at the acute hospital level of care and this has included: in the emergency room setting providing evaluation and crisis treatment services; in the acute care medical setting in a consultant role providing evaluation and treatment services to inpatients presenting with significant non-medical health problems; and in acute psychiatric care units as member of the Multidisciplinary Treatment Team of psychiatrists, nurses and other clinical therapist, providing evaluation and treatment services to both patients and their families.
I have also specialized in treatment services to persons with problems of addiction and have provided treatment in the acute care detoxification setting, and also outpatient treatment services, including court ordered, group treatment to men and women.
I have enjoyed considerable success in these various treatment settings, and I feel this is primarily due to my approach to treatment. Early on in my career I settled into the client centered Rogerion technique of treatment developed by Carl Rogers in the 60's. This is a non-judgemental approach, and emphasizes the focus of treatment is always where the client "is at" during any point. The process is to first in understand what is happening for them at the time of my intervention, and then in providing ongoing support and guidance based on extensive experience, through the treatment process.
I have natural interest in people and sincere desire to be in a helping role towards the patients/clients that I become involved with. For me there is a certain spiritual element to my work, and a personal benefit that I receive in being able to helping others to improve their quality of life as a result their work and my assistance.
