Biography

Debbie is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW-C) with over 20 years of experience, having practiced in research, special education, and in-patient and outpatient health care settings. She began working in the field of Oncology in 2017 and received her Oncology Social Worker (OSW-C) certification in 2020. Her role as OSW includes assessing and assisting with practical needs and barriers to care, while also providing clinical support. Debbie is also a board member for the Oncology Foundation Maryland and District of Columbia.

Debbie believes mental health, including emotional, psychological, and social well-being is essential to one’s overall wellness. Her approach to oncology patients and caregivers is to be a compassionate presence while holding a safe space for them to explore the emotional impact of the diagnosis. This approach provides empathy and utilizes supportive guidance to address common feelings of anxiety, stress, and depression.

Debbie understands that practical barriers and financial challenges often cause distress for patients. She works with patients to identify psychosocial concerns and utilizes community and national resources to best meet their needs. Debbie partners with various organizations in the wider cancer community and can steer patients to meaningful support options as applicable. Debbie’s services are available to all patients throughout the continuum of care.

In her free time, Debbie enjoys running, traveling, new restaurants and time with family and her goldens.
