I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in New Jersey with over 20 years of experience working in the field of health social work. I have worked with all age ranges, including pediatric, maternal health, adults, and older adults. I have also worked in outpatient and inpatient adult medicine, emergency room,  intensive care center, and palliative care. Currently, I am a manager of the social work department in an acute care hospital.

My hope for this website is for health social workers to understand their role in assessing and addressing loss, especially Underdiagnosed grief, with our patients and their families.  I am available for presentations and trainings. Additionally, I am available for counseling services via my virtual practice, Holding Space Counseling Service
