Jody Grande, Ph.D., LICSW

I chose social work because I wanted to provide a listening ear to those in need—challenging, supporting, and guiding as one's journey unfolds. We are each on a personal journey seeking balance, harmony, and contentment while we strive to reach fulfillment of wholeness, identity, dignity, and sense of self!

I enjoy watching the "budding" of new professionals and am honored to be a part of that process. I want to create an aura between myself and my supervisees that will foster learning, self-motivation, self-care, and professional development.

I hope new professionals will follow their passions as they reach out and touch the lives of others. I hope they will develop a stronger, healthier sense of self and gain a personal sense of meaning in life while emphasizing a positive, strengths-based approach for their clients.
