A little about me

I have been a therapist at Urban Horizons for almost two years. Prior to this position, I completed clinical experience at a community health center in Upper Manhattan where I worked with clients of all ages with varying degrees of trauma and intersecting identities. I am a first generation American and college graduate, and most recently earned my Master’s Degree in Social Work in 2020.

Why I love my job

Throughout my years working in community health, I have been able to bear witness to clients creating meaningful change in their lives. It is a privilege to be a part of someone’s healing process.
