IHBS (In-Home Behavioral Support)


In Home Behavioral Services are specialized, intensive services and treatments that are driven by the family’s goals. Individualized behavior support plans are created after extensive observations, comprehensive assessments, and functional behavior assessments. Services are provided through the Children’s Behavioral Health Initiative (CBHI) funded through Mass Health.

IHT (In-Home Therapy)


The In-Home Therapy program is designed to provide behavioral health services to families and children in order to improve functioning and prevent the need for other more restrictive levels of care. This service is available to members of the Massachusetts Behavioral Health Partnership, Beacon Health Strategies, and Tufts Health Public Plans. 

TM (Therapeutic Mentoring)


The Therapeutic Mentoring program provides support to children at risk for other more restrictive levels of care by supporting the treatment plan of In Home Therapy, Intensive Care Coordination, or Outpatient Therapy. This service is available to members of the Massachusetts Behavioral Health Partnership and Tufts Health Public Plans.

ABA (Applied Behavior Analysis)


ABA is an evidenced-based approach to understanding and changing behavior. By determining the function of behaviors, a behavior analyst identifies ways to modify the home environment and teach new skills to improve an individual’s health and safety, ability to communicate, and family relationships.

Outpatient Services


Northeast Family Services Clinic provides a range of diagnostic and treatment services on an outpatient basis. Outpatient therapy is provided to adults, youth, couples and families for a variety of presenting concerns. To learn more, click here.


Multicultural Outreach Team

Northeast Family Services understands that every family has unique needs and requires individualized care. Children's Behavioral Health Initiative services focuses on community based care for all families. Through our experiences we recognize that multicultural and multilingual families require specialized care that helps families with the process of acculturation without losing their cultural identity of origin and help close the cultural generational gap while adhering to CBHI standards.  


I have been with Northeast  Family  Services as an IHT  clinician for over a year. I was born and raised in San Juan, Puerto Rico, I worked as a School Counselor for 20 years at a private school. My bachelor's degree is in Psychology, from the University of Puerto Rico, Rio Piedras Campus and my master's degree in Counseling Psychology and Guidance from the Graduate School of Education at Rutgers  University in New Jersey.

I enjoy working with families from different places and customs. I enjoy opportunities to help people from minority groups to help them meet their mental health needs and collaborate as a team to better their lives.

 I was born and raised in Salinas, Puerto Rico.  I completed my Bachelor’s in Psychology and Mental Health at the University of Puerto Rico at Cayey. Later, I completed my master's degree at the Carlos Albizu University in old San Juan. I have been in Worcester for 3 years working in the area of ​​counseling. I have worked as an individual counselor for children, teens, adults and with substance abuse patients. I am currently a home therapist for children, teens, and family serving mostly Spanish-speaking families. I am also trained in TF-CBT (trauma) focused therapy. I am a very dedicated therapist and committed to my work and that is why I love working with the Latino community. In addition to understanding the need for services for Spanish-speaking people. I am more than excited to be able to serve my Latino community as they are a community that has a difficult time accessing services due to the language barrier.

Nací y me crie en Salinas, Puerto Rico.Estudie mi Bachillerato en Psicología y Salud Mental en la Universidad de Puerto Rico en Cayey. Luego curse mi maestría en la Universidad Carlos Albizu en el viejo San Juan. Llevo 3 años en Worcester trabajando en el área de la consejería. He trabajado como consejera individual de niños, adolescentes, adultos y con pacientes de abuso de sustancia. Actualmente soy terapista en el hogar para niños, adolescentes y familia sirviendo mayormente familias hispanohablantes. También estoy entrenada en terapia enfocada en TF-CBT (trauma). Soy una terapista muy dedicada y comprometida con mi trabajo y por eso amo trabajar con la comunidad latina. Además de entender la cadencia de servicios para las personas hispanohablantes. Estoy más que entusiasmada de poder servir a mi comunidad latina ya que son una comunidad que se le dificulta el acceso a los servicios debido a la barrera del idioma.
