On Clinical Social Work


I am a clinical social worker, holding a PhD in Social Welfare and an additional Master’s degree in Behavioral Science.

I chose to dedicate my professional pursuits to the study and practice of social work because of the profession’s mission to promote social justice and welfare for the collective, and because of its fundamental value placed on the inherent worth and dignity of all human beings.


While the bulk of my full-time career has been spent as an academic and researcher in the areas of health care, death, dying, and loss (including divorce), I have maintained a part-time clinical practice for over a decade and, also, have engaged in community-based social justice work with non-profit agencies.
