Kimberlee Van Burch, MSW, LCSW
Co-Chair of the Hudson Unit of the NASW-NJ
If you read through Kimberlee Van Burch’s websites you get a good sense of who she is as a professional licensed clinical social worker. You get pages of understanding about her training and the philosophical underpinnings of her approach to social work practice:
"Change is not easy, change is necessary, change is the key. Without change, all things remain the same. I have a collaborative approach to the process of change and helps people reach their personal goals. I am experienced working with individuals and families in a variety of settings. My philosophy is that good mental health only occurs within a cultural context. I employ a strength based culturally sensitive approach that allows me to support people through conflict and change."

Kimberlee brings all of her training, spirited passion, experience and commitment to social work and her clients to bear as a leader at the local Hudson Unit of NASW. In my eyes, Kimberlee Van Burch is a perfect example of a social work leader as she epitomizes the professional who so brilliantly balances the roles of mother, wife, entrepreneur, clinician, professional service volunteer and friend.
I am proud to nominate Kimberlee Van Burch for Social Worker of the month. She embodies the values, ideals and ethics of our profession. I am proud to be a colleague and friend to this gifted and spirited therapist. She has been a remarkable partner who has breathed life back into the Hudson NASW Unit and expanded our reach to Private Practitioners, other human services organizations and to our general membership. She is a treasure to her family, our community and to our profession. She is deserving of the recognition and the celebration.
