Soco is short for Socorro, the Spanish word which means, “I help.” My mother is Black & my father is Mexican. I grew up in Chino and graduated with a BA in Psychology from Claremont McKenna College and an MSW from UC Berkeley. Since 2010, I have been helping adults and children move through emotional blocks. My area of focus in therapy is in helping people overcome symptoms of depression and/or anxiety. There are very small ways we can adjust our thinking that can drastically change our lives. I’m here to help people make those small but powerful changes. I am especially passionate about helping people of color see that therapy isn’t a big or scary thing. It’s just some moments you carve out to tune up your thinking so you feel better about yourself, and so that you can be a better person for all the lives you touch. Ain’t nothing wrong with a little therapy, y’all.
Tristian grew up in South LA. 90043 to be exact. He attended CSULB and received his MSW from UCLA. He is determined to “turn the system upside down,” helping Black people negatively impacted by America’s many broken systems. He recognized the need for his people to have therapists who looked like them, who have a shared, or similar experience navigating the world as Black people. He has experience working with individuals learning to cope with life’s obstacles - big and small, traumas, patients and families navigating grief and terminal illnesses, couples in crises, formerly incarcerated teens, and teens impacted by foster care. His hope is that he can serve as a breath of fresh air to a people who society has long tried to suffocate.
