Yvonne Rodriguez is a mother of five. She is a graduate of the California State University, Long Beach (CSULB) with a Master’s in Social Work. Yvonne also graduated from Xavier University with a second Master’s in Criminal Justice.
Yvonne has been a Licensed Clinical Social Worker since 2002. She has worked in nonprofits from Los Angeles County, Orange County, and Riverside County for over 20 years, in which she excelled as an educator by helping individuals with mental illness live up to their full potential.
Her work has included counseling adults, children, and families in different settings and training school personnel and local businesses in areas of mental health. In addition, she continues to work with patients and their families at Torrance Memorial Hospital in Torrance, California.
Social Resources Connection is the result of many years of research and practical application in both psychological and trauma evidence-based modalities. Yvonne describes her work as a 'strength-based' approach based on educating families in order to deal with the difficulties associated with anger and major, life-changing events such as divorce, violence, and life transitions.
Yvonne's core strategies for SRC were born out of her work as an LCSW, a mom, a foster parent, and a child advocate. She sees the need to make services available to families to help inform and educate parents on how to parent with awareness, deal with anger, and live to their full potential through awareness and self-growth.
Social Resources Connection was created out of a desire to help others discover and practice what is best for their family, their child, and for themselves as a parent and individual to reach their full potential.
