Hello my fellow social workers!!!
I'm a licensed social worker, psychotherapist, psychoanalytic candidate, and member of the Fordham University Graduate School of Social Service Alumni Advisory Board. Over the years I worked as clinical consultant with the New York City Children’s Services and was a member of the Queens Borough President, Helen Marshall: Task Force on Domestic Violence, Child Maltreatment and Elder Abuse.
I have consulted with numerous organizations regarding LMSW exam development and I am currently a member of Fordham Unviversity GSS Task Force for the social work licensure exam. I teach LMSW Exam Review classes at Fordham University and other organizations. I facilitate weekly study groups in the community for anyone who is taking the LMSW exam. At the study groups the tutors will provide you with tips on test taking strategies for LMSW exam, share materials and practice exam questions together.
You will have access to tutors for assistance witha study schedule/plan, time management and reducing anxiety.
Starting May 23, 2010 we will be faciliating our first LCSW Study Group.
This meetup also holds meetings, continuing education trainings, peer support groups and book clubs. It could also be a time to unwind with friends for brunch and share information with each other or a time to volunteer in the community. These events will take place in the community and sometimes at home.
Many social workers who attended the study groups are passing the LMSW/LCSW exams upon completion of the study group.
I look forward in studying and networking with you.
Testimonials from students who passed.

I am pleased to inform you that I took and passed the New York State Licensure exam today -- and thought you'd like to hear the good news! Thanks to those who offered support and encouragement these past 2 years since earning my MSW from Fordham! Steve April 17,2012
I will no longer be attending the Sunday evening prep class and just wanted to thank you for allowing me to come to the prep classes again.
I passed the licensing exam this morning and I am so relieved. I took your advice and went for a massage yesterday night and did no more studying.
Please let my fellow study group folks on Sunday know that if I can pass so can they.
About my test:
-there were only about 3 or 4 questions about medication.
-I felt I had the test that ask all the what should you do first, the best , the most appropriate and what should you do next. lol you know I hate those questions.
-there were a ton of questions about ethics and professional values as well as child abuse and neglect.
Thank you so much again. I really appreciate the support and all the help.
I will be instructing my friends to take your prep class.
