A little something about me.

 

I’m a New York based Clinical Social Worker, born in Trinidad, W.I. and raised in Brooklyn.  I completed my Bachelor of Arts Degree in Sociology from the University of Connecticut (where I also ran Track and Field), and then went on to obtain a Masters in Social Work at Fordham University, with post graduate work at Adelphi University. In the past 12 years I’ve worked in various settings such as schools, outpatient clinics and psychiatric facilities and have had the privilege of supervising clinicians and students, while developing programs, and essentially saving lives. I absolutely love my work and might be one of the only people that excited to hear your problems. Understanding the need for access to well-trained clinicians who can handle your problems on a community level, I’ve since expanded into private practice with the sole purpose of providing exceptional care in the community, particularly for minorities.

I get that life can be hard. It’s challenging, exhausting and overwhelming and you know that best because you’ve been striving to be happy every day, all the while secretly miserable. I know you want to do well, but can’t turn down the negative noise in your head, or tolerate the panic rising in your chest, or the sadness trailing you. Balancing school, friends, even laundry and your feelings seem impossible, and it’s probably even harder to explain. If you want to be successful and have your life look like what you know you are capable of, you are not alone and I’m here to help and so are the members of my team at Kensho Psychotherapy Services.

Therapy is challenging, the growth is rewarding and it doesn’t mean you are “(insert label here)”. Together we will collaborate, set goals, try solutions and gain skills to navigate life.  How can we make this happen? Call or email and let’s talk. There is nothing more powerful than a changed mind. #Therapyisdope
