My Story (En Español: hacia abajo de la pagina)

I grew up in the Westlake District of Los Angeles where the surrounding environment wasn’t the greatest and family life consisted of hard working parents striving to provide our family a decent lifestyle. At the age of 10 my parents divorced, creating a life changing experience for the entire family unit at which point my motivation and desire to help families emerged.

In the early 2000s my mother was diagnosed with a mental health condition which further propelled me to learn about her illness and how to adjust to unforeseen circumstances. Through my experience, I’ve learned how life events can impact an individual and an entire family system. However, this was a pivotal moment towards my true calling. Later I began to work with youth and their families as they tried to make sense of their painful life experiences and how to cope with, and heal from them. I truly believe that you must discover the underlying reasons that prevent you from healing and moving on with your life. You then have to establish a healthier way of living that will help you reach your true potential .

Throughout my career I have gained valuable experience ranging from case management, counseling, mental health, crisis management and child & family welfare.

I believe that my personal and professional experience has provided me with the foundation to assist you in a compassionate and supportive manner. Further, my purpose is to help facilitate the process of healing and to inspire personal growth.

Mi Historia

Yo crecí cerca de el centro de Los Angeles adonde el ambiente no era lo mejor y la vida familiar consistia de padres trabajadores para poder aportar y darnos una vida placentera. A la edad de 10 años mis padres se divorciaron cual creo una experiencia distinta para nuestra familia. A causa de esta experiencia nacio mi motivo y deseo de ayudar a familias. A principios de los años 2000 mi madre fue diagnosticada con una enfermedad mental que me enseño, a, acoplarme a situaciones repentinas. Atravez de estas experiencias llegué a reconocer como eventos dolorosos de la vida pueden afectar a la persona y a un sistema familiar. Aun, esta face de mi vida me motivo a trabajar con adolecentes y sus familias que intentaban entender sus experiencias dolorosas y como superarse de ellas.

Sinceramente, creo que uno tiene que identificar las razones causantes que perjudican el logro a su verdadero(a) potencial. Alavez, udsted tiene que establecer un estilo de vida que le ayude a su desarrollo personal. Durante mi Carrera é obtenido experiencia en lo siguiente: manejador de casos, consejeria, salud mental, manejo de crisis, y bienestar familiar.

Mi experiencia personal y professional me a brindado la fundacion para poder ayudarle en una manera de apollo y compasion. Al fin, mi objetivo es; guiarlo(a) en el proceso terapeutico y alentar zanacion y desarrollo personal.
