Doris is a licensed clinical social worker (LCSW) who has practiced in a variety of settings including child welfare, schools, job coaching, and child and family therapy. She has enjoyed working with a wide range of clients including varied age, socio-economic situation, and ethnicity.
Helping individuals or families involved with foster care and adoption are among her special interests. She has enjoyed working with special education students from early childhood through high school. It has brought her great joy to see children with physical, developmental, emotional, and/or social needs grow and develop, supporting parents as their children progress through this educational and developmental journey. She often uses play and art therapy to work with children and is eclectic in working with all families. She approaches situations pragmatically, focusing on individual and family strengths to address needs. She listens to and respects the story each client has to tell, and works with each client to find solutions to move forward on life’s journey.
