About

Hello! I’m Valerie, a registered Psychological Associate in California. I’m currently being supervised by two wonderful psychologists, Dr. Kyrene Diaz and Dr. Sandy Equite-Rodas. I work at Uprise Psychological Wellness Corp., a telehealth group practice.

 

I have four years of experience working with individuals, couples, and families in different mental health settings. I am bilingual in English and Spanish. I primarily work with adolescents and young adults who have experienced trauma, anxiety, and/or depression. I also have experience working with individuals and families identify intergenerational patterns that impact both the individual and the family system. I am passionate about helping clients work toward meeting their goals and reach their potential.

 

I am committed to providing culturally sensitive services and welcome different ways of thinking in your treatment. I think the therapist/client relationship is a critical aspect of treatment and encourage clients to openly discuss both concerns and positive experiences about the therapist/client relationship in sessions.

 

I have been trained in Seeking Safety and Trauma Focused-CBT. I tend to take a warm and direct approach in order to make the most out of your time and address things that may be difficult to discuss.

 

Additionally, I will be co-leading various group therapy and wellness groups at Uprise to support individuals. Please feel free to inquire about the groups accepting new members.

 

I am offering a few sliding scale appointments for those who would benefit from some financial relief.

 

Please schedule a free 15- minute consultation to determine if I would be the right therapist for you and to discuss how I can best support you: (562) 661- 9831 or [email protected]
