Adalinda is a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist who provides mental health consultation to early childhood providers including those who provide Family, Friend and Neighbor care. She also providers psychotherapy through a community clinic. Adalinda has worked in both rural and urban communities with families for over 13 years, serving primarily immigrant and Latino families. She enjoys giving back what once was given to her from her mentors: the understanding that patterns of historical trauma and pain CAN be broken for each generation to heal and grow. She believes it takes a village and working together in community can magnify everyone’s internal healing powers.
