Associate Clinical Social Worker in Redondo Beach, CA
Supervised by Michele Teitelbaum, LMFT
Chronic Pain and Chronic Illness are merciless and often invisible. We "look fine," but we are hurting emotionally and physically, and tired of finding the words to explain ourselves. As a Multiple Sclerosis patient myself, I know the ins and outs of chronic illness and pain: Difficulty getting diagnosed, adjusting to an eventual diagnosis, relationship issues, expenses, hospital and doctor visits...you name it, I have either been there or helped another to better cope along the way.
I have worked with adolescents in various capacities for over 25 years. Especially in the South Bay, our young adults endure pressures from family, peers, school, activities, social media...it seems to come from all directions! Coping with the pace of growing up here is often more than they can handle, and more than parents can teach. Everyone needs some back-up sometimes! When Depression or Anxiety get too overwhelming from whatever the source, I can help alleviate some of that pressure.
