A little about me

I am a Mental Health Clinician who has been working for the Institute for Family Health since April 2022. Prior to working at the Institute I was working as a pediatric social worker at a city hospital for four years. I also have experience as a case manager and client care coordinator at a family shelter in Queens. I have worked with different people from all walks of life and my experience has provided me with vast knowledge to continue my work with helping individuals become the best version of themselves.

Why I love my job

I love being able to help people. I love being there for them as an extra support system and empowering them to be their best.
