About Me

Hi, I am a bilingual English/ Spanish licensed clinical social worker in California with over 12 years of experience in the mental health field. I have the honor of working with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, grief and loss, PTSD, anger and stress management, parenting issues, and couple relationship challenges.
I strive to create a safe, non-judgemental and comfortable environment so we can work together to gain insight into the various contributions to your feelings and problems. We will work on strategies that allow you to address the root causes of your problems, improve communication skills, build empathy & respect, learn effective problem-solving & conflict resolution skills, and strengthen connection, including intimacy. Very soon you will discover yourself and about the changes you can make to propel yourself forward. As long as you are open to sharing as well as accepting what is shared with you, this process of exploring can be highly rewarding, and it will also set up for success down the road. I’m looking forward to working with you!

I’d recommend Lourdes to anyone who wishes to meet with a therapist that has a listening ear and empowers you with tools to manage your anxiety! These last few months have been a welcome journey learning to manage my anxiety and I am appreciative that Lourdes is on my team!

I felt as though Lourdes knew exactly what to say to me and how to deal with my personality. She gave me some coping mechanisms to help me through a bad time and to relieve some negative thoughts and I am excited for our next session!
