Joanna Amenero, LCSW

My name is Joanna and I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW). I received my degrees from UCLA and USC. I have worked with all ages, in different settings, in both Spanish and English. My specialty is working with survivors of trauma. Individuals whom I have worked with are from all walks of life. I tailor treatment to each individual and I offer a safe environment where I listen without judging you, motivate, and engage you through cultural humility. I bring years of experience, good energy, and unique interventions with a charismatic personality.

I help individuals navigate generational and inter-generational trauma as well as other conditions that affect our mood, thinking, and behavior. I’m here to help you sort through the things that are difficult right now, and offer you a safe place to be open and honest without fear of judgment. My approach is pretty laid back. I have been described as caring, compassionate, supportive, and someone with a good sense of humor. I like to focus on identifying your strengths and helping you to maximize them to overcome your obstacles.
