School Psychologist & Counselor
Hello, I'm Denisa! I hold a B.A. in Psycho-pedagogy from Hyperion University of Bucharest, an M.A. in Special Education from the UK, and an Educational Specialist/School Psychologist degree from the USA.
I have worked with children in schools and clinical settings for over 20 years. I began my career as a School Psychologist for children with emotional challenges in an Orphanage in Romania and continued my work with children in the USA after I relocated. I am a believer that the social and emotional wellbeing of students impacts their academic development greatly. In addition to psychological evaluations, I also provide individual counseling sessions, focusing on emotional self-regulation, executive functioning skills, academic achievement, and grief issues. I have worked with students and families in crisis and provided grief counseling for students who have experienced trauma and loss in the family. Since the pandemic started in 2020, I have dedicated a lot of time to dive deeply into learning and providing Grief & Trauma counseling for children, adolescents, and families.
