Stefani Godina, LCSW
My name is Stefani Godina, I am a bilingual (Spanish speaking) Licensed Clinical Social Worker. I studied at Loyola University Chicago where I received both my undergraduate and graduate degree in social work. My graduate level studies focused on postpartum depression, reproductive health issues, perinatal mood disorders, maternal health stressors, and general mental health needs. I continued my professional career with a postpartum depression program for six years thereafter as I recognized my passion for working with women to address their many needs. I also had the opportunity to work as a behavioral health clinician utilizing an integrated care model for treatment which further supported my belief that patients fare better when both their medical and mental health needs are managed together. I am excited to join the team providing services with New Dawn Wellness as I strongly believe integrating general health care and mental health services enhanes wellness in women.
