Meet The Therapist

Carmen H. Ovando, MSW, LCSW 

Carmen H. Ovando, LCSW - I am a Licensed Psychotherapist who specializes in the treatment of trauma and depression-related disorders. Prior to founding Raices Mental Health Services, I worked in mental health agencies, community mental health clinics, and school-based programs.


I founded Raices with the desire to create a space that honors the beauty of diversity and promotes multiculturalism. As a proud Latina immigrant, I am passionate about immigration and cultural-related issues. I use a trauma-informed approach to meet you where you are at and together we can explore the cultural, spiritual, and environmental factors that are impacting you as we re-write your story to help you in this path of healing.
