Ana's clinical background is in child and adolescent mental health. Her schooling and early experiences as a therapist were in Los Angeles and San Diego, CA. Most of her experience is in community mental health, outpatient and school-based settings. As a first generation American, she always strives to give back to the community. She is the first one in her family to graduate from college and attain higher education.
Hobbies include anything outdoors such as hiking, running, and camping. She likes to stay physically active. She likes to describe herself as a curious individual, likes to explore new places and tries different things. She is originally from San Diego, and all her family still lives there. She uses that as an excuse for a ""summer retreat"" throughout the year.
