Yessica Cuenca-Garcia is a great asset to our Family & Youth Outreach Program (FYOP). She has been with the program for two and a half years and has completed over 600 volunteer hours. She has a positive attitude and is a great team player. Because Yessica has been with FYOP for long enough to gain much experience, she assists with training the new MFT Trainees. She has them shadow her sessions, shows them how to properly document case notes, and is available to help with any follow up questions. Yessica works hard and is very dedicated to providing the best service to our clients. Because she is bilingual, she has been able to assist families that have a language barrier. She has also had the opportunity to educate the Latino population on the importance of counseling when it is needed in the family; breaking down any negative connotation that these families may have regarding mental health. Yessica is and will continue to be a great counselor because of her passion and drive to help others.
