PROFESSIONAL HISTORY

I am a Licensed Social Worker with a certification in child well-being and welfare through the University of Pennsylvania. I come to Boston, previously working with children and their families offering family therapy in a crisis treatment center for children in Philadelphia. I also come with the experience of medical social work having completed my master's internship at the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia. Through a trauma informed lens and theoretical approach of attachment, I am currently completing a doctoral degree through the University of Pennsylvania. My research focus is on the impact of parental fear on the severity of mental health symptoms in citizen-children with undocumented parents.
