Licensed Clinical Social Worker
"My name is Elisha DeJesus. I hold a B.A. in Ethnic & Gender Studies, as well as, a Bachelors in Social Work. I have experience supporting individuals and families in various settings including schools, residential placements, immigration services, addiction services and hospitals.
While working in these various settings, I have been able to recognize the apparent need for mental health support and advocacy. I earned my Master’s in Social Work from Westfield State University and completed a fellowship with the Interdisciplinary Behavioral Health Collaboration (IBHC). Within interdisciplinary teams, I facilitated group therapy to youth ranging from age 5-18 in crisis.
I am currently a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) and continue to enjoy supporting youth and young adults who struggle with issues such as, suicidal/homicidal ideation, trauma, identity, depression, anxiety, and anger. I am committed to dismantling the cultural and social stigmas that hinder youth's development and access to services."
