I am currently a Registered Associate Clinical Social Worker (ASW 105075) through the California Board of Behavioral Sciences working under the supervision of Jose O. Alfaro, Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist, License # LMFT106423.

My experience has been community oriented offering case management, psycho-education, and working with families who have the need for mental health services and other community based resources. My passion to help others comes from both, professional and personal experiences that have allowed me to identify and understand some of the barriers our communities face when searching for supportive services and how they impact a family system and its individual members. I enjoy working with children and their families and have over 16 years of experience helping them manage crisis, homelessness, and cope with the effects intimate partner violence (also known as domestic violence) and life hardships in general. If you are struggling with adjusting to sudden changes in your life, please know that I am here to help you tap into your inner strengths to assist you in overcoming those life challenges.
