Destiny Morales, BA

Destiny is a graduate student at Rutgers University in New Brunswick, New Jersey. She is working towards her Master’s degree in Social Work with a clinical specialization focusing on mental and behavioral health. Before her graduate program, Destiny earned her Associate’s degree in Liberal Arts Psychology from Middlesex College in Edison, New Jersey, and her Bachelor’s in Social Work after transferring to Rutgers University. Destiny loves to learn and has had the opportunity to expand her knowledge in various therapeutic approaches and theories, which have aided her understanding of how to best work with clients. Destiny primarily engages in the client-centered and strengths-based approach to therapy. She is passionate about human behavior, development, and cognitive functioning and ultimately desires to understand and relate to each unique individual with whom she has the opportunity to work. Destiny strongly believes that it is essential for people to take care of their mental health as they would their physical health since it is just as important. The therapeutic journey is not always easy, but Destiny is always ready to lend a helping hand. She’ll prioritize active listening to understand and work with individuals towards meeting their goals.
