My Approach to Helping

Ya en mi edad madura, tuve que volver a la escuela en este pais. Termine mi bachillerato en SW y empeze a trabajar como Trabajadora de Casos. Despues de obtener mi maestria en Geriatria, me aventure en el area clinica (hospitales). Complete mis horas clinicas de supervision y empeze a trabajar como trabajadora social clinica contratista en agencias de consejerua, asilo de ancianos y mas recientemente, en programas federales siriviendo a la poblacion de immigrantes refujiados.

Empece a trabajar en mis credencializacion para trabajar por mi cuenta y en practica privada. Sin embargo, hasta este momento, mi clientela principal han sido los nuevos immigrantes profesionales y trabajadores con habilidades especiales y de habla Hispana. Empece a conscientizarme de la importancia del combinar entrenamientos academicos , experiencias personales y habilidades culturales que me ayudaban a servir mejor a diferente tipo de clientela con una vasta lista de problemas mentales y emocionales en diferentes areas.
Por ejemplo, he visto como las perspectivas academicas que incluyen: empoderamiento, enfasis en lo positivo y en las fortalezas del individo, tecnicas de relajacion, meditacion, espiritualidad, competencia cultural, restructuracion cognitiva, psychodinamica y aun las perspectivas legales de immigracion, entre otras, son mas efectivas cuando se combinan con empatia, compasion y valor que uno solo puede adquirir con los anos.

Already in my mid-life, I went back to college in this country. I completed my bachelor in SW and started working as a Case Manager. After earning my master's in geriatrics, I ventured into the clinical field (hospitals) as a bilingual/bi-cultural therapist. I completed my clinical hours of supervision and started working as a contractor in counseling services agencies, nursing homes and, most recently, serving the immigrant population in government refugee programs as a bilingual/bi-cultural clinician.

After becoming fully licensed, I started working on my credentialing to start working on my own and with private clientele. However, up to the present, my primary clientele has been the Spanish-speaking professionals and special skilled new immigrants. I noticed the importance of combining academic training, personal experience, and cultural skills to best help different types of a population with an array of mental and emotional issues in different settings.

For instance, I have learned that academic perspectives that include empowerment, strengths emphasis, play activities, relaxation techniques, spirituality, cultural competence, cognitive restructuring, psychodynamic, and even legal immigration approaches are more effective when combined with empathy, compassion, and courage than one can only master with time.

More Info About My Practice

I want to serve the new immigrant population, as it was the immigrants population's needs in this country that prompted me to go back to college and start from zero. It has been a thrilling experience and I am ready to recapitulate knowledge and experience to use it for the purpose it was intended.
