Hi! My name is Zulma C. Medrano-Lopez and I am a bilingual, first generation Salvadoran American. I graduated from the University of Maryland with a B.S in Family Sciences and Minor in Human Development in 2011. I later pursued my Masters of Social Worker through Our Lady of the Lake University in San Antonio, Texas with a concentration on delivery of services to Latinos and their families in 2016 and later obtained my LMSW license in 2017. I have over 10 years of combined experience working with very diverse populations in clinical and non-clinical settings. Clinically, I enjoy working with clients from a strengths-based, systems focused, goal oriented approach and support clients in an interactive manner.
While I have experience working with many different populations, I have an interest in working with young adults in college or postgraduate studies, parents as they develop and process their ever-evolving parenting identity, individuals experiencing separation and learning how to manage co parenting relationships, and finally first generation adult children of immigrants; as they work to dissect the role their multiculturalism has had and continues to have on their identity. I offer weeknight, telehealth sessions to help support individuals who are unable to otherwise access mental health services due to difficult day time schedules. I look forward to connecting with you and learning how I can be of support to you on your journey towards self-love and self-actualization.
