Mental health care for parents and parents to be. Se habla español!
I am here to help guide you with the process of starting care with Brooklyn Parent Support. I will be your first contact with our practice, explain our services and connect you with the clinician you would like to work with. Prior to working with Brooklyn Parent Support, I provided childcare and guidance to new parents as a Head Start teacher in Manhattan. I was an early childhood teacher for many years and have my degree in early childhood education.
I am currently a Registered Nurse working on UCLA Santa Monica's perinatal unit. I started my education at Hobart and William Smith Colleges and received a BS in Psychology. Following that, I moved to New York City and completed my Bachelor of Science in Nursing at NYU Rory Meyers College of Nursing. While at NYU, I focused my studies in the perinatal, working as a research assistant. I also completed Cornerstone's doula training to help prepare myself for a career in perinatal nursing.
Upon graduation, I started at New York Presbyterian Columbia's High Risk Obstetrics unit as a Labor & Delivery nurse. I quickly became intrigued with the birth world. My passion for assisting with the birth process (prenatal, intrapartum, and postpartum) has continued to grow and has landed me in my current role as a perinatal nurse. I am excited to incorporate my experience in perinatal nursing with my background in psychology and be a resource for parents during challenging times.
