Hello! I have experience working with youth from ages 3-18, including special needs and those with severe emotional/behavioral disturbances. Some of the diagnoses I have worked with include: autism with and without speech delays, ODD, ADHD, major depressive disorder, bipolar disorder, substance use disorder, and anxiety disorder(s).
Working with families affected by mental illness or IDD is a passion of mine, especially when it comes to teenagers. Building bonds with youth, supporting them, and watching them thrive is so rewarding. I have a bachelor's in social work/psychology/criminology and am pursuing my master's in social work.
