Welcome to my practice. As a bilingual, Spanish-speaking, clinical social worker I am passionate about providing therapy services to help adults, children, and families. I am licensed in the State of New Jersey and earned my Master’s in Social Work from Rutgers, The State University. I am also a professional member of the National Association of Social Workers. In addition to my license, I hold several certifications and I continue to educate myself by attending national and local conferences, keeping up with current therapy research, and seeking supervision.
