Iris Padilla-Beshara is a bilingual licensed clinical social worker who specializes in assessing and treating traumatized and bereaved youth. Iris’ passion about trauma and grief stems from her own professional experiences as a clinician working in the community, where she was exposed first-hand to the impact of unaddressed posttraumatic stress and maladaptive grief in children’s functioning. Iris wishes to create authentic professional relationships with youth and families, where they feel empowered to identify, acquire and practice the skills necessary for coping with their experiences in a healthy way.
