NORWAY — Market Square Health Care Center Administrator Roberta Metivier, MS, announced recently that Gina Mosca, LCSW, has recently joined Market Square as the outpatient therapist for patients and residents.
Mosca, a licensed clinical social worker, will be working with residents at the health care center one day a week. She will offer individual counseling for residents who are referred by the social worker at Market Square. She often works to facilitate counseling with families or with care managers at the nursing homes, acting as a patient advocate. If desired by the resident, she can help them improve their self-advocacy skills and collaborate with facility staff when needed. Her therapeutic interventions are based on three models: grief therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy and solution-oriented/problem-solving therapy.
Mosca earned her bachelor’s degree in Gerontology at the University of Connecticut and later her master’s degree in social work at Fordham University. She works in private practice for a company in Lewiston called Possibilities Counseling Services Inc.
