I am a senior clinical social worker with special training in palliative and end-of-life care, cognitive behavioral therapy, and psychosocial interventions for children who have a parent with cancer. I counsel people and their families throughout the trajectory of an illness on the inpatient Neurology, Neurosurgery, and Orthopedic Services. I also lead support groups for patients, caregivers, and hospital employees. I have a particular interest in the use of photography to illustrate and explore the narrative of those facing cancer. I joined Memorial Sloan Kettering in 2011.
