I am a Clinical Social Worker and I have been a practicing therapists for over eleven years. I have worked as a Victims Advocate, Forensic Social Worker and a School Social Worker among other helping roles. I earned my Masters Degree at Columbia University School of Social Work and my Bachelor's Degree in Psychology at Manhattanville College. Throughout my graduate and post-graduate career I have facilitated the success of individuals and families with emotional and behavioral challenges and served as an advocate for indigent clients facing incarceration, immigration detention, homelessness and civil confinement. My clinical experiences have prepared me to work with culturally diverse populations and varying types of emotional and behavioral concerns. I have extensive experience in assisting individuals with chronic mental illness such as Anxiety, Depression and Bipolar Disorder. I also have experience assisting individuals who have experienced or are experiencing sexual trauma, domestic violence, relationship issues and stress from everyday life.
You may or may not be fully aware of the reason for your search for a therapist today but it is a start. Whether you are overwhelmed with emotions, anxiety, change or adjusting to something new, therapy can be beneficial. My approach to therapy is that our work will add and/or improve your skill sets and be used long after therapy. My goal is to empower my clients with the tools they need to help themselves.
I look forward to working with you!

Words can’t describe. The lady is wonderful. She gets me to thinking
Adanna is an amazing counselor. I was very anxious to start therapy but after just a few meetings she has helped me tremendously and I’m excited to continue working with her.
I've found Adanna to be patient and kind. She listens and asks great questions that get me thinking. I was nervous about doing therapy because I never feel my problems are big enough, but Adanna helps me feel seen and heard. She does not invalidate me. I'm glad we were matched.
Definitely helped me on my journey to self!
Adanna is extremely professional, and adept at navigating interpersonal relationships. I especially appreciate her approach to the idea that therapy should have an end point.
Adanna is an amazing counselor! She really takes the time and opportunity to get to the core of who you are and help you discover things about yourself. She truly cares about her clients! It is a blessing to have Adanna as my counselor and I would recommend her to any one who is in search of therapy.
