Hey there, and welcome to taking the first step towards improving your mental health. My name is Lorena, and I'm a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with experience working with a variety of populations, cultures, and age groups. I am a graduate of University of Southern California and placed an emphasis to learn about children and families, and military-connected families. I have a strong background working with community mental health helping youth and young adults 7-26 years old with moderate to severe mental health symptoms and impairments. Even though times may be tough, I do my best to make our work together fun! I personally enjoy the outdoors, being at the beach, going for a hike, and trying new foods. I also love traveling because it allows me to escape while learning new things about myself, and different cultures.
