My name is Cara Di Bona and I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with 8 years of school social work experience. I continue to work in the middle school setting (students from 6th-8th grade) and know from my day-to-day conversations with students and families that middle school and high school can be extremely challenging for everyone to navigate. You are not alone!


I thoroughly enjoy working with the adolescent age group and am excited to be able to collaborate with schools, families, and students in a different setting. I am a firm believer in meeting a client where they are and strive to maintain an open and safe environment to explore things like anxiety, depression, ADHD, anger management, bullying, behavioral issues, self-harming behaviors, and coping skills. I look forward to hearing from you!
