Hi, I'm Joanna!

I am a bilingual, Spanish-speaking Licensed Clinical Social Worker with experience supporting diverse populations in a variety of settings including community mental health, Federally Qualified Health Centers and mobile crisis in conjunction with law enforcement agencies. I received my Master’s Degree in Social Work with an emphasis in Mental Health through California State University, Fresno.

Through a client-centered, integrative (mind and body), collaborative process rooted in authenticity, compassion, non-judgmental and a respectful approach, we work together to explore your thoughts, feelings, symptoms, and patterns to identify the root cause of your present stressors. Through this collaboration, we focus on identifying and/or enhancing existing strengths, copings skills, resources, and support system to cultivate self-compassion, resilience and assist you in overcoming challenges, navigate life stressors more effectively, enhance your relationships and improve the overall quality of your life.

My therapeutic approach consists of multiple treatment modalities entirely dependent on individual needs. These include Behavior Therapy, Solution Focused, Psychodynamic, Dialectic Behavioral Therapy, Acceptance Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, mindfulness, psychoeducation and more. I have assisted individuals experiencing Anxiety, Depression, situational stressors, relationship problems, adjusting to life transitions, suicidal ideation, behavioral issues, trauma, loss and grief, generational trauma, cultural identity and more. My goal is to provide you with a safe, supportive, and judgement-free space where you allow curiosity to be a part of the journey to your best self.
