After experiencing some adversity in my younger years, I decided to use my life experience to help others. I attended Saint Joseph’s University in Philadelphia where I studied sociology, philosophy and the Italian language. After graduating with my Bachelors degree, I went on to earn a Master’s degree in social work from Monmouth University. Shortly after, I worked in both an outpatient and partial hospitalization program for a hospital system in New Jersey. While working for the hospital, I gained experience treating clients with dual diagnoses (mental illness & chronic addiction). In addition to my private practice, I serve as a Director of Minding Your Mind, a nonprofit who provides mental health educational presentations to schools, businesses and community organizations.
