My main goal as your therapist would be to help you reach your greatest potential.
Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Walnut Creek, CA
I have knowledge of Medication Assisted Treatment and how it increases the changes of long term sobriety. I have also worked with individuals that are on the spectrum of harm-reduction to absences using 12 step NA/AA. I am also trained in EMDR for addictions and know the importance of being able to reprocess negative memories and triggers that have led to addictive behaviors.
I am a Salvadorian Mexican American, and I understand the struggles of feeling like you don’t fit in in either culture. The struggles of having monolingual parents, the stress of having to be their interpreter and scribe, parent to your younger siblings and filter what information comes across into your household. Luckily, I was also witness to how hard work pays off and the power of setting goals and doing everything in your power to achieve them.
