BIO
Neriza Candelario, LCSW-C
I received my Masters degree in Social Work from Smith College in Northampton, MA.  I have been a Licensed Clinical Social Worker for over 15 years and work from a patient centered, solution focused perspective. I work with children age 12 and older, as well as adults. Moreover; I specialize in working with adults who experienced trauma as children and never been in therapy before; as well as youth transitioning into adulthood. 

Early in my career, I worked with youth in foster care. The work I did with them impacted my life and helped to shape the interventions I use when working with young people who feel misunderstood and/or alone.  My work is non-traditional when I am working with teens and young adults who previously were not engaged in the therapeutic process.     

Working with youth in care continues to be one of my commitments as a mental health provider. I also teach at the college level and enjoy working with all students to find their passion.   My role as a teacher, allows me  the opportunity to encourage all of my students to think about how their work impacts everyone they come in contact with; no matter what field they enter as professionals.  

During my free time, I enjoy spending time with my two children gardening, canoeing and camping.  

Thank you for considering me as someone to work with you on your goals.
