Merlyn Peña-Solis,

I am a first-generation Latinx Associate Clinical Social Worker. I graduated with my Master in Social Work from the University of Southern California Suzanne Dworak-Peck School of Social Work. 


My scope of practice includes working with first-generation immigrants and the Latinx community while providing a humanistic and psychoeducational approach to have clients achieve their goals. I have extensive experience facilitating group therapy services, conducting individual counseling sessions to implement a patient education curriculum to assist clients in establishing a foundation for lasting recovery across multiple levels of care.


I am on a mission to destigmatize Mental Health in the Latinx community to help individuals prioritize their own mental health.
