Lucia Sosa Franco

L.C.S.W.

The relationship I build with clients is my priority. I have ten years of experience working in the County of Los Angeles with underserved communities and I am continuously driven to assist others in challenging and turbulent moments. As a community mental health therapist, I focused on providing services to probation youth and their families by implementing Functional Family Therapy. I also have experience providing Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy to children. These prevention and intervention models draw from individual strengths and help resolve emotional difficulties. I have a Masters in Social Work from the University of Southern California and a B.A. from California State University, Long Beach in Child Development and Family Studies. I am fluent in Spanish. I take on a multicultural, strength-based perspective. I understand and recognize the differences, strengths, and uniqueness to individuals and communities.Together we will build the skills that are necessary to obtain a greater sense of self-awareness and a strong foundation for healthy relationships.
