About Me

Hello! I am Esmeralda Ledesma, a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and founder of Adelante Therapy, a telehealth therapy service provider in California. As a bilingual, bicultural Latinx mental health therapist, I am deeply passionate and dedicated to promoting mental health wellness for women of color, addressing a wide range of concerns including; Anxiety, Depression, Wok Stress, Self-esteem, Identity Development, Relationship Concerns, Life Transitions, Grief, Loss, and Trauma, Parenting Concerns, and Perinatal & Postpartum /Maternal-Infant Mental Health. Mental health affects how we think, feel, and act. It also helps determine how we handle stress, relate to others, and make choices. In therapy, my focus is to hold a safe space that allows us to explore, identify, and work through difficult aspects of your lived experiences to create a new path for your future. You don't have to face life's difficulties on your own. As your therapist, I draw from several treatment models, integrating them in a way that supports your vision in life and that considers your unique story. I will assist you to develop new tools that facilitate your capacity for happiness, authenticity and healthy connections.
