I have over 15 years of experience working in healthcare with people who are seriously ill or dying and with their caregivers, with healthcare professionals and with those in mourning. I hold national board certification in Palliative care and have written, taught, presented and researched in areas such as bereavement, caregiving, death anxiety and coping with serious illness. I received both my master’s and my doctorate in social work from New York University, where I am still on faculty part-time, and hold advanced post-graduate certifications in Palliative and End-of-Life Care and in Clinical Supervision.
