Wendy is a San Francisco native but is the daughter of immigrants from El Salvador and Guatemala. Wendy is joining the ALAS team as a therapist. She deeply cares about the mental health wellbeing of Latinx families. She has seen how the Latinx community and other communities of color have been excluded from mental health services and is happy to be part of a team and organization who is changing that. Currently, she is finishing up her Marriage and Family Therapist education at the University of San Francisco. Wendy has been working with Latinx, undocumented, and immigrant families and youth in San Francisco by helping students go through the college application process. She is very excited to be serving the Half Moon Bay community with ALAS!
