Rosita Hermosillo

Associate Social Worker

I’m an immigrant/Latinx, bilingual in Spanish and English therapist who specializes in working with a variety of populations including minorities, immigrants, and the LGBTQ+ community. I also have experience working with older adults, children, adolescents, and their families with a variety of diagnoses such as depression, anxiety, adjustment disorders, borderline personality disorder, ADHD, ODD, and Trauma.

I have a Master’s degree in Social Work from the University of Southern California with a concentration in adult mental health and a Bachelor’s degree in Socio-cultural Anthropology with a minor in Arabic and Islamic Studies from the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA). I strive to provide a safe and nonjudgmental space where clients can share their story, gain insight, increase personal strengths, and be themselves to have a happy and meaningful life. I strongly believe that clients are the experts of their own lives and for this reason, I utilize strengths-based, client-centered, and cultural-informed approaches.

I incorporate evidence-based interventions such as EMDR, CBT, and DBT in treatment to effectively reduce symptoms. I strongly believe that therapy does not have to be boring; I try to make sessions fun by incorporating art, music, games, and video games.

I truly believe that therapy can change a person’s life. My main goal is to provide unconditional positive regard to my clients and to use the best of my knowledge to assist them to overcome adversities of life. Processing trauma and learning new tools to cope with life adversities are a click away!
