Speaker Bio

I am a Licensed Marriage and Family therapist who is passionate not only about therapy but advocacy and destigmatizing mental health. I have participated in various speaking engagements throughout my career, including presenting research finding at national psychological conferences, creating, hosting and help moderating the first workshop for Spanish speaking parents of the autism society community in the inland Empire. I have facilitated process groups, and psycho-educaitonal groups and hope to expand my experience and extend my knowledge in speaking engagements.
