About Me

I received my BA in Sociology and Criminal Justice from California State University, Fullerton. I furthered my education by receiving a Master of Social Work degree from California State University, Fullerton with a concentration in child welfare. I grew up in Inglewood, CA in a Cuban and Mexican American household. During these youthful years, my passion towards social justice and helping others began. I myself struggled with anxiety during these years and decided to make it my life's mission to become an empathetic listener and advocate for the children, families, first generation college students, and other adults in the BIPOC and Latinx communities.

Education & Experience

I have been providing school based mental health services in North Orange County since 2018. Working with students and families to cope with various stressors, trauma, anxiety and depression by providing a variety of therapy modalities for depression and anxiety. Prior to this, I worked with children and families at risk of entering the foster care system to connect them to appropriate services during times of crisis and provide support. Through these experiences I have been able to help individuals find their inner peace, balance, strengths, and walk the middle path towards healing and provide trauma therapy for adults children and families.
