Erika Alanis-Garcia, MSSW, LCSW
Hola! Welcome. Bienvenidos. I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, a mom and a wife. I was born and raised in Mexico. I moved to Texas right after high school to pursue my higher education. In 2009, I graduated from The University of Texas-Pan American (today known as University of Texas Rio Grande Valley) with a Bachelor’s of Science in Psychology and Sociology and in 2011 with a Master’s of Science in Social Work, with a concentration in Direct Practice with Latino Individuals, Families and Groups.
I am a Certified Laughter Yoga Leader and I have been sharing the power of laughter with people since 2011. I have been working with children and families for the last 9 years providing mental health services and support. I have worked in the community counseling setting and currently in the school system as a school social worker.
As a clinical social worker, I will always meet my clients where they are while helping them find their strengths and resilience utilizing diverse evidence based treatment methods.
Throughout the years, the power of therapy has supported people in their healing process, now more than ever, this world needs to be healed. I invite you to give therapy a chance.
