West Central Family and Counseling (WCFC) is excited to announce the appointment of two new Co-Clinic Directors Jo-Anne Gaughan-Cabral, LICSW, and Simona Pozzetto, LICSW.
Prior to their recent appointments Jo-Anne and Simona had served as clinic supervisors for WCFC. Combined, these directors have over forty years of clinical social work experience across outpatient, inpatient and long-term care settings.
Aside from their daily operational responsibilities of the clinic, both directors will oversee the implementation and growth of clinical programs. This past April Mrs.Gaughan-Cabral launched WCFC’s Cancer Informed Therapy Program, which provides mental health treatment specifically for cancer patients, families, caregivers and their loved ones. Referrals for this program are currently being accepted.
WCFC has also developed a Geriatric and Family Services Program, which works to provide clinical services to elders and their family members throughout Western Massachusetts.
“Unfortunately, mental health resources for elders are sometimes difficult to find and there is an increasing demand due to population growth. We plan to use our expertise in working with this group over the last 23 years to provide psychotherapy and psychopharmacological management. In addition, we will be able to meet with family members and caregivers of individuals with Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias in order to provide education and behavioral consultation,” said West Central Family and Counseling’s Vice President of Operations Karen Mozzer.
With the development of these programs Mrs.Gaughan-Cabral and Mrs.Pozzetto will be hiring clinical staff for therapist and supervisory roles. Part time, and full times positions are available. Candidates interested in applying to WCFC should visit www.westcentralfamily.com for more information.
