Mental health care for parents and parents to be. Se habla español!
I hold a Doctorate of Social Welfare in Clinical Social Work (DSW), an MSW from NYU Silver School of Social Work, and a post-graduate certificate in Advanced Clinical Practice. My work experience in the field has encompassed several positions involving assessing and treating severe trauma in children, adolescents, and adults due to community disasters, migration and resettlement, war or other conflicts, and traumatic birth experiences. I participated in a Clinical Social Work Fellowship at the Yale Child Study Center Outpatient Psychiatric Clinic for Children. I am bilingual (Spanish) and previously worked at the Mount Sinai World Trade Center Mental Health Program, providing evaluation, psychotherapeutic, and referral services for 9/11 first responders. Recently, I worked as a staff psychotherapist at the Larchmont Mamaroneck Community Counseling Center, providing individual, family, and group counseling services to Southern Westchester County's Spanish-speaking community. I have been an adjunct lecturer at the NYU Silver School of Social Work since the fall of 2019. As a clinician, my area of research is trauma among the undocumented Latinx community.
I am in-network with United, Oxford, Oscar, Aetna, BCBS, and Cigna.
