Sandra Burgess, MSW, LCSW
I was born blind having only light and color perception. In my 30’s, I began to develop a significant hearing loss and currently I have some issues with balance. I am still able to benefit from a guide dog and have added a support cane to the mix.
After coordinating the Community Volunteer Program at Massachusetts Association for the Blind and Visually Impaired (MABVI) for ten years, I returned to college to obtain my Master’s degree in social work. Since graduating in 2007, I have continued to work part-time in community mental health seeing children, adults, and couples and helping clients cope with anxiety, depression, blended families, sight loss and traumatic brain injury.
