About Me

Hi, my name is Helen, and I am an accomplished Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker (LICSW) with twenty-five years of progressively responsible experience in the field of social work. Throughout all my years of work, I have always viewed my main task as building rapport with patients and their families, while providing effective, and time sensitive appropriate counseling. I am experienced in telehealth having successfully worked from home with online counseling through Aetna for at least five years. I am excited to be providing this service once again online to assist, encourage, and support those in need of help. I am a Christian and practice from a strong faith filled, spiritual base, with a non judgemental attitude and approach.
My extensive work history and training has allowed me to gain experience and mastery knowledge in behavioral health, mental health, social work, program planning, development and implementation. My work experience includes an active history providing all aspects of social work principles with diverse populations in varied settings. I excelled in developing close communication and excellent working relationships with individuals, numerous community leaders, and resources, establishing vital networks to ensure availability of placement, with smooth transitions upon discharge as needed. My earlier experience included work with military populace where I was responsible for investigating all assigned cases of child abuse, neglect, molestation domestic violence, and presenting my findings of either substantiated or unsubstantiated, to the Family Advocacy Program, (FAP). In other agencies I provided sensitive time-limited casework services to children and families. I have also provided marital counseling, parent-child education and casework planning as needed, in addition to referring clients for psychological/psychiatric evaluations and treatment. Additional experience was gained at the state mental health hospital, where I served as a float Psychiatric Social Worker. As a float, my services were utilized on every ward throughout the entire hospital, to include specialized units such as geriatrics, traumatic brain injury (TBI), sexual assault, and forensics, to name a few. I look forward to speaking with you!
