I am a native New Yorker but have had the opportunity to move to Rhode Island in 2017. Since moving to Rhode Island, I have enjoyed the community I serve and live around. I have continued serving and working with vulnerable populations no matter the location. My specialty in the field of social work is Clinical Mental Health. Throughout my academic and professional career, I have honed in my specialty by working for several agencies and populations, such as HIV/AIDS, Developmental Disabilities, Behavioral Health, and Child Welfare. My ultimate goal as a psychotherapist is to be impactful to the community and clients I will and continue to serve.
