About me

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!

She’s wonderful and ask all the right questions

Written on Mar 17, 2022 after therapy with Adanna for 2 years and 3 months on issues concerning depression, and relationship issues

Adanna is great! She offers a sound listening ear, asks insightful questions, and gives you space to work through your feelings. I found her when I was going through a difficult time and I’m so glad I did.

Written on Jun 27, 2021 after therapy with Adanna for 1 year and 1 month on issues concerning stress, anxiety, self esteem, coping with life changes, and compassion fatigue

Adanna is an incredible therapist/counselor. I see tangible results, and I feel comfortable in our meetings. She gives me tools that I can use in my day to day that slowly but surely make the days better and brighter. I was suspicious of bon line counseling but I’m extremely grateful for all Adanna has done.

First impression was instant and lasting. Really down to earth with her approach, intently listening to me and what I had to say. I'm looking forward to working with her to help me gain healing and closure.

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.
