I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW), Certified Care Manager (CMC), and Registered Yoga Teacher (RYT200) who has been privileged to work in the field of aging for a decade and a half. I hold a Masters in Social Work (MSW) from the University of Maryland-Baltimore (2004) and a Bachelors in English from the University of Missouri-Columbia.
I coordinated the research center of the late Gene D. Cohen MD PhD, The George Washington University Center on Aging, Health, and Humanities (cahh.gwu.edu), which was where I first studied creativity and aging, and became wholly enamored of the capacities and potentials of aging people (which we all are).
I help people awaken their potential, solve difficult problems, integrate change and loss, and live in the fullness of their being.
Like working with older and disabled people? I would love to support you on your professional journey. In supervision, we will establish a positive learning environment, hone clinical practice skills, wrestle ethical dilemmas, analyze client interactions, apply theory to practice, increase self-awareness, and build your knowledge base.
