My Story

I have been drawn to caring and supporting youth starting within my own family as the eldest of my siblings. As I went on to pursue higher education, I knew that I wanted to continue to help other youth with navigating family dynamics, mental health, education, and more. I have since worked with youth in grades k-12 with various needs including Autism, developmental delays, ADHD, learning difficulties, anxiety, depression, and behavioral needs. Through my role as a social worker, I have enjoyed stepping into the lives of the children and adolescents I work with to facilitate an uplifting and healing space for them to develop into their best selves. I am most passionate about serving youth and their families from diverse and resilient backgrounds using a strengths-based and trauma-informed practice.

My Eyas Landing

I became interested in Eyas Landing due to their multidisciplinary team approach to supporting children with special needs.

My Professional Goals

  1. To expand my skillset in using evidence-based therapeutic interventions.
  2. To become a fully licensed clinical social worker specializing in child, adolescent, and family mental health.

Eyas Landing is a therapy clinic with a mission to provide evidence-based and family-centered therapy services for children, adolescents, and their families.
