Healthcare Advocate Profile

Learn More About this Valuable Professional

Rick Tivers
LCSW, CGP

How I Can Help
I assist clients in using their voice so they or their family members can speak powerfully and with conviction to receive the services they are entitled to. If the actual patient is unable to speak, then I work with the families and their physicians to support the advocacy process.

Formal Education
Northern Illinois University, Bachelor of Arts, 1979
University of Illinois, Jane Addams College of Social Work, 1981

 Why I Became a Professional Healthcare Advocate
I am actually a licensed clinical social worker and certified group counselor.  I have extensive clinical experience counseling victims of injury, medical error and medical trauma but my practice is ancillary to and supportive of patient advocacy.  I admire the dedicated advocates affiliated with this group and I’m proud to be able to offer my services in this forum.
