Maria Ruelas, LCSW

I am a Bilingual (Spanish speaking) Licensed Clinical Social Worker who specializes working with children, young adults, and families. I earned my master’s degree from USC Suzanne Dworak-Peck School of Social Work and my doctorate degree at USC Rossier School of Education. I am a highly motivated and passionate individual who is committed to providing excellent clinical interventions and outreach services regarding mental health and wellness to any of my clients. I am self-aware and culturally competent as I have had the opportunity to work with individuals from diverse backgrounds, cultures, and experiences. I have served diverse/eclectic groups of individuals and families ranging from different hardships and issues that have hindered their daily functioning. I provide treatment to individuals with social and emotional concerns such as, social skills, anxiety, aggression, depression, self-esteem, gender identity, impulsivity, hyperactivity, complex traumas and much more. I use a wide range of evidence-based practices and modalities that are specific to the needs of my clients and provide a safe space to process and understand their feelings and emotions. My wish is to provide my clients with a great therapeutic experience!
