Hello, my name is Veronica Brambila. I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist. I am currently a clinical supervisor for Coachella Valley School District (CVUSD) therapist and Riverside County Officed of Education (RCOE) therapist as well. I currently have an active caseload of mental health clients I see weekly and use Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) to help patients resolve unprocessed traumatic memories. I am trained and certified as a Parent Child Interaction Therapist (PCIT) and have helped families focus on establishing warmth in their relationship with their children. I have experience working addiction due to prior to being a therapist I was a substance abuse counselor for 8 years. I later became trained and certified as a Multi-Dimensional Family Therapist (MDFT). MDFT is a family-centered treatment and substance misuse prevention program for teens s with substance use disorders. I sincerely enjoy working with Latino Commission and I don’t want to be elsewhere. I believe we’re set for great and exceptional things. I appreciate the privilege to be part of this team.
