Jody Frank, LCSW, DCSW, CAS

“I knew clearly that my life work was to help people understand their pain and identify the obstacles that keep them from attaining their goals and dreams. I want to help others find hope, learn that they have choices and begin to envision the possibilities.”

Jody discovered her passion for social work, therapy and the field of addiction recovery. She received her Bachelor’s Degree in Social Work from California State University of Northridge (CSUN) and her Master’s Degree from the University of Southern California (USC). She began her clinical career at Crossroads Adolescent Psychiatric Hospital as a psychiatric aide working with a multidisciplinary team. She trained in and learned about process groups, addiction, adolescents and family work, 12- steps, and a myriad of psychiatric disorders. Today, in her private practice, Jody specializes in addiction, trauma, codependency, dating and relationship issues and working with clients in the entertainment industry.
