Veronica Cardenas

I obtained my Master of Social Work degree from the University of Southern California with a concentration in Adult Mental Health and an emphasis in Military members and their families. During my time as an Associate Social Worker, I’ve had the honor of gaining experience providing psychotherapy to Veterans, adults, adolescents, and children with various backgrounds, experiences, and mental health concerns. I have had the pleasure of working in various mental health settings as well, which include outpatient clinics, crisis intervention, geriatric clinic, skilled nursing facility, and an unaccompanied minors foster care agency.

Practice Philosophy:

I am a bilingual (Spanish-speaking) associate social worker who is passionate about working with individuals of various backgrounds within our communities. I pride myself in providing ethical and professional clinical services in a safe and non-judgmental space. In collaboration with each client, I strive to empathically listen and assist in developing customized treatment plans to help achieve positive changes through a strength-based perspective. The above mentioned evidence-based modalities are also practiced in conjunction with a culturally-sensitive and trauma-informed approach towards wellness.
