GET TO KNOW THE CLINICAL TEAM

Mi nombre es Joanna y soy psicoterapeuta licenciada en trabajo social. Recibí mi educación en las universidades de UCLA y USC. Mi manera de acercarme y trabajar con uds es de una manera relajada. Las personas con las cuales he trabajado me describen como una persona cuidadosa, compasiva y alguien que les brinda apoyo con un buen sentido del humor. Me gusta enfocarme en poder identificar sus fortalezas y propagar sus usos para superar sus obstáculos. Estoy aquí para ayudarte a navegar las cosas que encuentres difíciles ahorita y ofrezcas un espacio seguro en el cual pueden ser abiertos y honestos sin el temor de ser juzgados.

He trabajado con todas las edades, en diferentes capacidades en español e inglés. Mi especialidad es trabajar con sobrevivientes de trauma. Les brindo años de experiencia, buena energía, intervenciones interesantes y diferentes con una personalidad carismática. Yo siempre me aseguro de hacer todo tratamiento único y específico dependiendo de las necesidades del individuo. Ofrezco un espacio seguro en el cual te involucró, motivó y te escuchó sin juzgar.

I am a Peruvian therapist that grew up in the city of Cudahy so I am grateful to be in position where I can provide services to my Spanish speaking community. I received my education from UCLA and USC and my work is rooted in mental health, personal growth, radical self-care and self- esteem. I advocate, motivate and educate on innovative healing to achieve a wholesome life.

Over the last 12 years I've had the privilege of holding multiple roles within the therapy world. I was at schools, foster care, adoptions, military bases, hospitals, non-profits, private practices, community clinics, family resource centers, inpatient, outpatient programs and even the substance abuse world. This allowed me to work with folks from all walks of life. I tailor treatment to each individual and offer a safe environment where I listen without judging you, motivate and engage you.‚Äč I bring years of experience, good energy, and unique interventions with a charismatic personality.

Hey there! My name is Leila Aguirre and I am an Associate Clinical Social Worker.  I am dedicated to creating a safe and understanding environment for individuals who have felt and still feel the inability to identify one.  My approach to therapy is a mixture of education, experience both professional and personal, collaboration, and lots of self-love and inner child work.  I strive to make collaborative and safe environments while utilizing various interventions, techniques, and authentic, positive energy while you work through behaviors, patterns and trauma. I view my role as a therapist to be your biggest advocate and encourage you throughout your healing journey.

I have a Bachelors and Masters in Social Work both from Azusa Pacific University with a clinical emphasis. I have worked with youth, adults, substance use disorders, re-entry population, and individuals living with disorders such as schizophrenia. I provide care with a trauma informed and strengths based lens. I know that therapy is such a personal and powerful experience and connecting with your therapist is important.  I am passionate about the work that I do and you can expect my authentic self to assist in building a strong therapeutic alliance.

My name is Christian Chavez, I am an Associate Clinical Social Worker. As an immigrant who came to the United States at a young age, I am familiar with the struggles of marginalized, oppressed populations that do not have a strong voice in the community. I am a Hispanic male who was educated on the importance of mental health. I am a huge advocate in the Hispanic community regarding mental health. I received my bachelor’s degree from the University of Cal State Los Angeles and received my master’s degree from Cal State Long Beach. I consider myself an active learner who is always looking to get better at my craft. I do this to better serve the clients I work with and make the therapeutic process enjoyable and create a safe space. 

I like to empower people in the therapeutic process and work as a team with clients to help them achieve their desired goals. I like to create a safe and welcoming environment so people could feel free to share without feeling like they are being judged. I have experience working with the population that have a problem with substance use that has negatively impacted their lives. I like to educate others on how cognitive distortions have a big impact on our behavior and how to help them reframe their thought process by implementing healthy coping skills.
