Bilingual therapist and founding director of Bienvenido
2010: I am working in Goshen, IN, at Bienvenido, a program for newly arrived Latino immigrants, and at. Northeastern Center, Inc., a community mental health center where I am a bilingual therapist.
In the last years my activities have revolved around program development, offering resources for health and hope, as well as education and livelihoods, for Latinos in Indiana’s schools, churches, juvenile correctional facilities, and communities.
One recent activity was coordinating a Latino Behavioral Health Summit in Northeast Indiana. We were privileged to have presenters from California, Maryland, Michigan, Mexico City, and Indiana. The conference was an attempt to bring local Latino behavioral health professionals from our region to discuss the barriers to service and current sustainable behavioral health initiatives in the Latino community.
