vILMA Gonzalez Guzman



My name is Vilma Gonzalez-Guzman, and my pronouns are she/her. I was born in the Dominican Republic and raised in San Juan, Puerto Rico. I have 6 years of experience working in the field of mental health in the state of Massachusetts. A year ago, I moved to Henderson, Nevada from Connecticut. I did my bachelor’s degree in social science in Social Work at the Universidad Del Sagrado Corazon in San Juan, Puerto Rico, and my master’s degree in social work-Direct Services at the Inter-American University of Puerto Rico-Metropolitan Campus, in San Juan, Puerto Rico. During my bachelor's and master's degrees, I did my internships in fields where my role was not directly related to mental health but where there were social, biological, and environmental factors that directly affected the mental health of those populations. During my internship process, I
understood how different factors can affect emotional health, and how difficult and frustrating it is to not understand what is happening to you because you do not understand those emotions. I also understood the importance of taking care of our mental health and how risky it is when help is not sought in time.
