Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Salinas, CA

About My Clients

I specialize in clinical support to children with behavioral issues such as acting out, ADHD, elementary and high school challenges, (iep/504 plan consult) and parent child conflict. I can offer individual, family therapy, and parent coaching. I support ages 3 and up. I also support the ASD spectrum. Lets talk soon!

My Background and Approach

My Goal is to provide a space that feels warm, non-judgmental and more importantly helpful. I work with adults, teens, and children who are experiencing trauma, depression, anxiety, and grief. I believe that navigating these experiences is more manageable when we get to work through them with someone else. I offer Talk Therapy, Play Therapy, Mindfulness Techniques, Art Therapy, and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, to help resolve conflict, improve communication, and work to resolve trauma with a focus on early attachment and developmental needs. I also offer parent coaching to help with challenging behaviors at school or in the home. I am a Bilingual and Bicultural Spanish speaking clinical therapist with 12 years experience working with youth adults and families of varied life experiences. I enjoy working with clients from diverse backgrounds. My experience includes working with Elementary, Middle, and High school-aged students.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I really enjoy working and supporting children, youth and families. I have always been an inclusive person to those that need or seek help. I pride myself as a community advocate and volunteer. I am a bilingual Latino who has worked with a variety of communities, and have learned to support people with different experiences and challenges in their life. I am a volunteer and co-founded a community farm that raised food for my local community food bank. I love to travel and I have lived abroad in several countries. My personal and professional experience has allowed me to work and collaborate with people of many faiths, and from numerous cultural groups. I hope to be a support person in your life as you navigate the mental health system.
