Bethany Goff, MSW, LCSW, social workerAbout Me

Hello, my name is Bethany and I have been a social worker since 1990. My approach to patient care is holistic and I consider all aspects of a patient’s life and how that impacts their health and their health care decisions. 

My Qualifications

My experience as a social worker has been in long term care, psychiatry, home health, and as a hospital social worker and supervisor.

My experiences in multiple health care settings helps me understand what patients encounter throughout their health care journey.

What Inspires Me

My patients are definitely my motivation. I enjoy partnering with them in their health care decisions. I work to make sure their experience is positive and I advocate for their needs.

Outside of work I like to spend time with my husband, three teenagers and my three dogs and also take long walks through my neighborhood.

What I Would Like My Patients to Know 

I enjoy having conversations with you and building a relationship so you trust me to help you with your goals.
