Introduction: Welcome To The Political Social Worker


I am a Licensed Master of Social Work in New York State who specializes in macro level practice with particular focus on issues impacting the gay, lesbian, bisexual, & transgender community.  I am also interested in women’s rights.  Over the years I have worked as a Community Organizer & Advocate.

The decision to start this blog came after years of frustration caused by a lack of support for macro Social Workers.  The majority of blogs, discussion groups, etc., focus on clinical practice while largely ignoring those of us who work at the macro level or in non-traditional Social Work.

Feedback is more then welcome.  If you have any questions or a topic you want to explore let me know.

In addition to being the founder of The Political Social Worker blog, I am a consultant. My consulting practice offers advocacy and community outreach solutions to nonprofits, social good organizations, and private practitioners. Additionally, I offer career coaching to macro social work students and professionals.
