She breaks the stigma that comes with mental health by educating herself & her family on ways they can work together to make their household a healthy environment. She sees how important it is for her parents to sit with her siblings & let them know that they can go to them if they need to talk about their feelings, or to reach out for professional help at any moment. Yaneth’s hobbies include hiking, running, going to the gym, baking, and writing.
At the practice, she helps with referrals, billing and translating material.
