Licensed clinical social worker joins Family Alliance

WOODSTOCK –Licensed clinical social worker Nicole O’Dea has joined the staff at Family Alliance Inc.

O'Dea's background in therapeutic services for individuals and families will supplement Family Alliance’s recovery program. Her prior experience includes intensive home-based services with a community mental health agency. Her specialties include assisting persons recovering from co-occurring disorders, such as mental illnesses in tandem with substance abuse issues.

She has a bachelor's degree in psychology from the University of Illinois and a master's degree in social work from Loyola University.

"Her personal philosophy of going above and beyond has already benefited Family Alliance and our clientele in a number of ways,” said Kim Larson, executive director of Family Alliance. “Many of her ideas have led to discussions among staff about possible new programs and service offerings that can benefit the community.”

O'Dea facilitates “A Journey toward Healing and Recovery during Bereavement” from 6:30 to 8 p.m. on the second and fourth Monday of each month at Family Alliance, 2028 N Seminary Ave, Woodstock.
