I earned my Masters degree in Marriage and Family Therapy, with an Emphasis in the Latino/a Population from Pacific Oaks College in 2014. Upon completing my Masters I began working for a non-profit agency providing mental health services for various populations, including: lower income families, single parented households, children with a history of different forms of trauma. I continue serving families at this agency and I apart of the Children’s Full-Service Partnership. Within this program, we support families, who may have had cases open with the Department of Children and Family Services, history of psychiatric hospitalizations, cases within Juvenile Probation, at risk of being removed from home or school settings.
