I work with individuals, families, and attorneys on immigration matters in the cozy office seen at right.
In 1993 I began writing letters for my dying clients requesting the presence of their loved ones who lived in other Latin American countries. It was then that my immigration work began helping my client’s family members obtain a six month visiting visa; none of my requests were ever denied and my clients were able to have their final goodbyes with their loved ones.
Previously as a Clinical Social Worker
As a Texas licensed clinical social worker, I have 20 years of direct client experience. My pre- and postgraduate work over the years includes working in the corporate sector, hospital/hospice setting and working in a government agency as well as with a nonprofit agency.
It was the desire to know more about the clinical aspect of working with clients that drove the need for further education. A graduate degree was obtained from the University of Houston Graduate School of Social Work where I was one of approximately five Hispanic students to earn a Master of Social Work degree in my graduating class.
My training was geared towards working with families and children. During that 20 years of a traditional psychotherapy private practice, my scope of experience expanded to working with all individuals from teenagers to the geriatric.
As a Licensed Clinical Social Worker it is my primary goal to honor each client and provide the best environment in which they feel confident that they will receive the best service for a competitive rate.
