I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) registered with the Board of Behavioral Sciences (BBS) in California. I earned my Masters in Social Work degree with an emphasis on mental health from San Jose State University. I have experience in working for local Non-Profits, Community-Based agencies, and previously held positions as a School-Based Mental Health Clinician. I have extensive experience in working with children and adolescents in a variety of therapeutic settings. I am passionate about de-stigmatizing mental health within the Latinx community. My areas of expertise include depression, anxiety, family conflict, anger, and crisis management. I utilize a client-centered approach and strive to provide unconditional positive regard in order to support members achieve their therapeutic goals. I incorporate treatment interventions from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Narrative Therapy, as well as Mindfulness practices.
