Bio:
Veronna is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, dedicated to providing support to children, teens, adults and families dealing with anxiety and depression, grief and loss, substance abuse, and simply coping with everyday life stressors. She developed a particular interest in Postpartum Mood and Anxiety Disorders (PMAD) and Maternal Mental Health after getting started in perinatal social work at Sharp Mary Birch Hospital for Women over 20 years ago. In addition, she has lived the experience of adjusting to motherhood (time and again) herself, caring for a child with a life-threatening illness, and understands how life can suddenly wreak havoc and bring about a whole host of unexpected challenges to individuals and families. Veronna currently works at Scripps Chula Vista Hospital, as well as some continued per- diem work at Sharp Mary Birch. In her spare time, she enjoys spending time with friends and loved ones, attending music and sporting events, visiting her grown sons away at college and walking her dog around the neighborhood.
