Asking for help takes a lot of courage. So kudos to you for seeking professional help and completing the first step to getting better. Know that you’re not alone. And I am here to support you and your family with any difficult situations.
I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) in California with a Masters degree in Social Work from the University of Southern California. I am bilingual in Spanish and English. I have experience working with teens and families as a mental health clinician in the community, hospital, and residential programs. I have worked with teens struggling with depression, anxiety, psychosis, substance use, self harming behaviors, family and relationship problems. I have used phototherapy with teens in order to help teens express their emotions and concerns. My clients generally enjoy this modality and feel comfortable doing a fun activity. I am creative in engaging with teens and I explore different activities that fit their personality to help them stay engaged during our time. With my clients’ permission, I encourage their parents to join in my sessions as I believe their involvement during treatment can help support my clients better and improve your parenting skills.
I look forward to connecting with you soon!
