THE ART OF HEALING
Healing is an ongoing journey that changes with every new experience and stage in one's life. It is the restoration of health within the mind, body, and spirit. It is non-linear and unique for each individual. It is a constant walk towards wholeness where one continues to build on our learned lessons, strengths, and abilities to thrive. Just like an intricate art piece, the process is not always pretty and fast but it is always worth it.
Carolina Perez Placencia, MSW, LSWAIC
I am originally from Aguascalientes, Mexico raised in the U.S. since age 7. I identify as a bi-cultural, bilingual, Spanish/English speaking, undocumented immigrant, woman of color and I use she/her/ella pronouns.
I completed my bachelors degree in Psychology with a minor in family studies at Central Washington University and Masters in clinical social work from the University of Washington. Majority of my experience comes from working with communities of color from different age groups and backgrounds in various capacities for over 10 years. More specifically, with the Latinx immigrant community. My work with different age groups across the mental health field has allowed me to have a deeper understanding of the different stages of development outside of my academic education. Especially, how trauma transcends through generations and throughout a lifetime when it is not addressed. I consider trauma work my specialty and have an understanding of the co-occurring mental health struggles that often follow. My recent work experience has been heavily concentrated in trauma-focused work specific to sexual abuse/assault, while addressing the many intersections of violence that come with it. I embrace social justice and multicultural counseling to serve minority groups. My mission is to provide culturally responsive and accessible mental health care.
