Helping Individuals, Couples & Families Understand, Heal, and Grow

Leticia Vaca, LCSW

Clinical Social Work/Therapist, LCSW

I am a Bay Area Native, and like a growing number of families across the United States, I have personal experience with family confronting the challenges of mental illness, substance abuse and physical ailments. I have worked with individuals, couples and families for the past 15 years in field of health, human services, and mental health.

I’m a proud graduate from the University of California, Riverside with a B.A. in Psychology; where I also received a Proclamation of Service from Mayor Ronald Loveridge of Riverside for involvement within the local community. I earned a Masters in Social Work from California State University, East Bay with an Emphasis in Community Mental Health. I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in the state of California (LCSW#77386).

Above all, I am a strengths-based, solution-focused practitioner, who believes in the internal strengths of people and communities. In my free time, I love playing, training and chasing after my bull terrier puppy “Slick Rick”, running, weekend hikes, dancing to live music, cooking, and laughing with friends and family.
