I am a Masters Level Social Worker having earned a Masters Degree in social work from Northeastern University. I have been working in the social work field for three years. I was born and raised in Chicago's southwest and northwest side. I am a first generation Ecuadorian whose parents arrived in the US in 1989. I take a multisystemic approach in my work with my clients due to the challenges and barriers I saw my parents navigate trying to get resources as immigrants. I am passionate about helping and accompanying others in difficult circumstances. I started my work in youth development and in institutional settings. Through Centro Sanar, I accompany adults and families in community based settings in their journey to heal and thrive. In providing clinical services, I take elements of strength based, psycho-dynamic, and EMDR. My passions are self care, spending family time with family, advocating/ empowering my community, planting, music especially “Bad Bunny”, practicing meditation and yoga, and taking vacations. I am a proud mom dog to Benito.
