Serving the Community Since 2005
I grew up in New York and spent many summers in Hawaii visiting family which paved the way for me to move to Hawaii in 2001. After graduating from the University of Hawaii at Manoa, I began working for a non profit organization focused on assisting victims of domestic violence. I became passionate about this work and it led me to further my education in the field. I returned to New York and received my Masters in Social Work from NYU. I have worked for both non profit and state organizations assisting adolescents and their families in the foster care and court system. More recently, for the past 7 years, I have provided trauma focused therapy to military families experiencing domestic abuse and child abuse. I also have experience working with the LGBTQIA+ community.
