I have worked with children and adolescents for over 10 years.. As an undergraduate, I studied Early Childhood development and Psychology, interning and working for an Early Childhood Center and Head Start program. I went on to master in Social work. During this time, I interned and worked at a Therapeutic Day Treatment program as well as interning with a Legal clinic to aid teenagers in the legal system. After I obtained my MSW, I worked with children and adolescents who displayed sexually inappropriate behaviors as well as having severe childhood sexual abuse trauma in residential treatment. Once I left residential care, I began and have stayed in Outpatient therapy working with children and adolescents with all types of mental health issues from anxiety and depression to various types of trauma. I am trained in TF-CBT and EMDR in addition to my training in Play Therapy.
