About Me

Hi Everyone! I believe we all have unique stories and healing paths. I would be honored to be invited to provide you with a safe place to tell your story and to be a part of your healing journey. I have so much admiration and gratitude for you and your willingness to begin your healing. You may be feeling some discomfort or worry about beginning this journey. I welcome this discomfort and worry as I know taking that first step can bring up several emotions and physical discomfort in our bodies. In my practice, I will walk along side you and this discomfort to help you find the most appropriate path of healing that is unique to your needs. My name is Irene Nunez, I am a licensed clinical social worker (LCSW). 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 goal to become an empathetic listener and advocate for individuals from BIPOC communities. In order to do so, I have become a strong advocate for taking steps towards decolonizing and destigmatizing how we view and participate in therapy in the mental health field. I believe my approaches are aligned with those of holistic therapy and healing practices. I have taken and continue to take several steps in integrating this into my practice.
