I work in schools as a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) providing mental health services to students.


I received my Doctorate of Social Work (DSW) at Rutgers University. I earned my Master of Science in Social Work (MSSW) at Columbia University. I earned my bachelor of arts degree from Rutgers University. 

I am also a published author. Check out my articles, De Vito, K. (2017). Schools fall short: Lack of therapeutic continuum of care in public schools. Reflections: Narratives of Professional Helping, 23(4), 4-19.

I love my job and being able to touch the lives of my students in a positive way every day. Gang prevention is a passion for me. Helping to make a difference in the lives of students is both an honor and a privilege.
