About me

Hi! I'm Wanda. I am a Licensed Masters Level Professional Clinical Counselor in California (#8891), Florida (#1605), and Texas (#69875). I am a National Board Certified (#4802) and Tele Mental Health Credentialed (#875) Counselor. I am certified by the State of California in Crisis Counseling and Family Violence. I have a Masters Degree in Guidance and Counseling and a Bachelors Degree in Social Work. I have 40 years of experience in various agency settings at all levels (Federal, State, and County). I have worked with an array of Private for Profit/Non Profit Agencies and Residential Treatment Centers, . I am an entrepreneur, so I have had a few Private Practice Settings. I specialize in crisis counseling, mood disorders, communications skills, parenting, trauma, family violence. I am trained to identify and work with mood disorders, behavioral disorders, personality disorders, adjustment disorders, and the other diagnostic categories. I was raised in a culturally diverse extended family system, so I enthusiastically welcome populations of diverse cultures and identities. I have spent at least half of my career working with teens, tweens, children, and young adults. I am a wife, mother, and a grandmother. I enjoy indoor and outdoor hobbies. My approach is person centered, building on your strengths and support systems. I am committed to bringing out the best of you and guiding you to solutions. Counseling is valuable not just for mental health conditions; but also for various circumstances such as stress management, rites of passage, changes in life styles, etc.

Written on Nov 29, 2022 after therapy with Wanda for 1 year and 7 months on issues concerning sleeping disorders, parenting issues, self esteem, anger management, career difficulties, coaching, and adhd

Wanda came into my life at a time of great need/ great grief and took time to understand me and provide the best help that was needed for me and helped me out of this cave I got myself into. The best part was that the she really worked in the way that worked best for me. I dont know what I would have done without her. I am forever happy to have met her in my life. I found a wonderful therapist and a friend in her.
Therapy works wonders! 100% I would recommend Wanda to anyone I know!

Work with me!
