Donna Gardner-JacobyLicensed Clinical Social Worker,
I received my Master of Social Work (Clinical) and a Master of Arts in Public Policy and Management from Ohio State University. I'm a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Florida and Illinois with a Mental Health and Aging Certificate from Boston University and certificate in Cognitive Processing Therapy from the U.S. Veterans Health Administration. I have provided therapy in private practice, through non-profit community mental health centers, as an in-home therapist for older adults, in a non-profit agency serving survivors of intimate partner violence, and within a VA outpatient clinic. In each of these venues I have grown more skilled but have found some anchoring values that guide me regardless of where I work: be genuine, be reliable, listen and stay absolutely present, celebrate the uniqueness and strengths of each person I'm privileged to work with, this is about collaboration, choice and teamwork, and hope is essential.
