Meet Sanjuana

Hi, I’m Sanjuana, a licensed clinical social worker. I’m passionate about providing a culturally sensitive and comfortable space for you to share your thoughts, your feelings, and your experiences, without judgement.

I work from an evidenced-based framework, which means I implement techniques that have been scientifically proven to work. I believe it’s important to understand how our bodies respond to stressors and how that can impact our quality of life. 

I also believe in bringing my authentic self to the therapeutic relationship as a way to connect with you, validate your experience, and normalize your feelings. This allows us to work collaboratively to meet your personal goals. I use humor and a laid-back approach to simplify therapeutic terms and interventions so that you can apply them to your daily life. I help individuals who are presenting with anxiety, depression, trauma, issues with identity development, family conflict, life transitions, and challenges with acculturation. As your therapist, I will challenge you, motivate you, and guide you through the challenges you are facing.

I am so happy you have taken the steps to live your best life! If you think we are a good fit, I would love to hear from you. Reach out to Dr. Allison and Associates today.
