Working with Me
In 2005, I worked for a non-profit organization, Hispanics Against Child Abuse & Neglect (HACAN) as a program coordinator. I provided children with training on “Good Touch, Bad Touch.” After my time with HACAN I pursued a career in law enforcement where I enjoyed serving my community, particularly the Spanish Speaking community and working with victims of crimes, abuse, and mental health issues. I realized that I wanted to focus my attention on helping individuals on their journey towards healing and being the better versions of themselves. In 2010, I pursued my Master of Social Worker degree from the California State University, Northridge. While in the Master’s program, I worked with survivors of sexual abuse and domestic violence providing individual counseling.
In 2012, I began my employment at the Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family Services (DCFS) as a Children’s Social Worker. Working in the child welfare system has furthered my clinical skills as I gained professional experience assessing safety and risk, managing crisis, stabilizing family situations, and learning the process through Dependency Court and Family Law Court. In 2021, I became a Licensed Clinical Social Worker. I enjoy working with my clients in helping them identify and address their past trauma. It it most gratifying to see my clients grow through the process of individual therapy.
I meet with my clients in person or via Telehealth.
