Jasmine Soto, LSW, LMSW

Licensed Master Social Worker

“Just because no one else can heal or do you inner work for you doesn’t mean you can, should, or need to do it alone,” this is something I consider and carry with my therapeutic approach. As your therapist, I am dedicated to work together to assist and guide you on a self-discovery journey to feeling better and learning effective ways of coping with diverse situations. My experience working in the mental health field has given me insight on the resilience we all carry within us and we sometimes just need that different perspective to shed the light at the end of the tunnel. My goal as your therapist is to provide a safe space for healing and foster a healthy therapuetic alliance to meeting your personal mental health goals for positive change.
