My name is Beatriz and I'm a Chicana born and raised in California who loves to read, spend time with my family and watch movies. I believe my identity as a first generation BIPOC women influences my work as a practitioner and I try to ensure I am always creating an empowering and healing space for everyone I work with.
I have been practicing as a social worker in a variety of settings for over a decade with the last 5 years specifically as a masters level clinician. I enjoy working with diverse populations that might need a little additional support as they navigate challenges that come up in daily life and believe in the power of owning our own lived experience. I incorporate a blend of narrative therapy, motivational interviewing and cognitive behavioral therapy to my approach though I tailor each session to the needs of the individual I am working with.
Additional areas of focus: Relationship issues, Trauma and abuse, Grief, Anger management, Coping with life changes, Coaching, ADHD, Abandonment, Attachment Issues, Blended Family Issues, Commitment Issues, Communication Problems, Control Issues, Divorce and Separation, Family of Origin Issues, Family Problems, Immigration Issues, Life Purpose, Military and Veterans Issues, Money and Financial Issues, Multicultural Concerns, Pregnancy and Childbirth, Prejudice and Discrimination, Self-Love, Sexual Assault and Abuse, Social Anxiety and Phobia, Women's Issues, Workplace Issues, Young Adult Issues
Clinical approaches: Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Mindfulness Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, Narrative Therapy, Solution-Focused Therapy
