I became a therapist to utilize my innate skills of empathy and kindness to support those in need. I am passionate about working with children to support their social and emotional growth. I graduated from Aurora University with my Bachelor’s and Master’s degree in Social Work. I specialized in School Social Work and have my Professional Educator License (PEL) and am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW). I worked at a private therapeutic day school setting for four years where I worked with students of varying ages and abilities. During my time there I utilized creativity and play to engage students in the therapeutic relationship and process.
We can’t say enough about our experience with Blue Bird Day in Wheaton. We drive an hour a day because we truly believe and value the education/therapies that our son receives 5 days a week. Miss Alyssa, Paulina, Nina, Maria, Sara and Mr. Akhil are simply AMAZING!!! Our son, a former micropreemie, has been attending since July and what a difference it has made, the milestones achieved. We are so excited for whats to come with BBD and truly can’t thank the staff enough! Thank you all so much for your help and support with our little guy!
