C. Katherine DeStefano's natural ambition is the reason for her more than 13 years of service in the mental health field, working full-time and acquiring various clinical skills sets. As a licensed psychotherapist, DeStefano is the founder and president of New Horizons Counseling Services, Inc. (NHCS), a mental health services provider.
NHCS has grown significantly during the past five years — from an office of one to an office of five licensed outpatient therapists. DeStefano has also become highly regarded for her custody work.
"I am passionate about working to meet the best interest of families, especially for children," she said. "In today's society, family can lose its essence through the demands of mental illness and custody battles."
DeStefano has been actively involved within her community, volunteering at the Pink Out Charity. Additionally, she has provided more than $100,000 of pro bono work for custody cases and is dedicated to the best interests of children.
