About Me

I am a licensed clinical social worker. I have an extensive experience working with adults and adolescents in the hospice setting, navigating grief, bereavement and trauma. I am also passionate about working with women's issues, pregnancy and newborn loss, mood and anxiety, relationship and family concerns. I am a nonjudgmental and welcoming, strength based clinician.

Written by E.V. on Jan 18, 2020 after counseling with Selene for 2 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship issues, trauma and abuse, and self esteem

Selene is a wonderful counselor. She is the first counselor for me where I feel like she has knowledge and understanding for my particular situation. I feel like she is really trying to help me get through it.

Written by M.A. on Jan 13, 2020 after counseling with Selene for 11 months on issues concerning relationship issues, and intimacy-related issues

Selene was an angel in shining light and hope in some of the darkest days of my life after dealing with a hugely traumatic shock and having no one to talk to about it with all its complexity! She was always supportive, timely and on the first weekend when I didn't know how to get through it all...she was there when other therapists/ counselors wanted to plan and schedule things, she made herself available to when it suited me and around my work.
I felt I had a supportive and wise non-judgmental friend and like minded soul who was there to listen, empathize and hold my hand to start to rebuild things.
Her personality shone through beyond what normal counseling and psychotherapy entails. She cares and uses her heart to reach put to the heart of others.
I cant recommend her highly enough and I am now a year on and in a completely different and happy place thanks to Selene being there in the initial days weeks and months. I'm also happily married and reunited with my husband from across the world also and the future is looking bright and hopeful. Thank you is simply not enough! I wish you so much love and happiness!

Selene is a wonderful counselor. She listens to you is very enthusiastic and has empathy for your concerns. She gives you very good ideas and materials that are useful. Based on my experience with Selene I would highly (and already did) recommend BetterHelp.

I’ve really enjoyed working with Selene. I feel she was a good match for the issues that I need to work through as well as in tune with alternative therapies that I am using as well.

Selene is very kind and considerate. I feel like I can tell her anything without any judgement. I would recommend her to a friend/family member. She's very supportive and has excellent tips and advice. Glad I was matched with her :)

Selene helped me identify the root cause of my concerns by listening and guiding me towards the work I needed to do to get my answers and move into a place of acceptance.

I highly recommend Selene to any individual who's ready to reach out and ask for guidance.

I have been avoiding therapy for the past couple of years and I was especially hesitant to try online counseling. However, I decided to take that step a month ago and I was paired with Selene. I am so glad I took this step. Selene is really amazing. She's supportive, caring and a great listener. She has already helped me so much in such a short time - and I am looking forward to continuing this journey with her.

Words cannot express how grateful I am to have found Selene. She has helped me in ways I never thought possible. She is calm, kind, sensitive, and seems to know exactly what to say. I started speaking with her only a few weeks ago and I've come such a long way already.

Written by J.O. on Jun 09, 2019 after counseling with Selene for 2 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship issues, and coping with life changes

Selene has been a tremendous support for me. I was nervous to share some deeply personal choices I made and found her response very supportive and positive. Though I was scared to share this information, I am glad that I did because it opened up a deeper understanding for me that Selene was there to support me. I find that she is very caring and skilled in her counseling.

After one month working with Selene, I feel confident that she can help me with my problems. She really goes through the things I write and not only helps me out with suggestions, but also gives good input to any of my questions. I feel like we are working through my problems bit by bit and that I know more about myself and how to deal.
