Robert David Casas, is a Registered Associate Social Worker #84014
working under the supervision of Dr. Karla Heredia, PsyD, Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist #92394.
I received my Masters degree in Social Work with a concentration on Integrated Health at California State University, Long Beach.
It is my mission to support and empower individuals and families through humility, compassion and collaboration; I have experience working with children, teens and adults in various social service agencies such as: Progressive Resources, Respite Cordova, Premiere Health Care Services, YMCA, Whittier Union High School District and Los Angeles Centers for Alcohol and Drug Abuse.
Through these agencies I have gained knowledge in working with children, teens and adults both self-referred and court mandated reporting symptoms. such as but not limited to anxiety, depression, bereavement, bi-polar, anger, substance abuse, homelessness, marital issues, life adjustments and various forms of trauma.
In addition, I have gained a strong interest in working with parents and families affected by complex conditions such as Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and other special needs. I have both professional and personal experiences in supporting parents and siblings in social support group settings. I also have past experiences as a social support/community integration staff member for children, teens and adults diagnosed with ASD.
Overall, I am devoted to supporting and empowering the well-being of all individuals and families.
Through a collaborative and humble approach, we can develop a plan for growth, enrichment and improved self-compassion.
Thank you for taking the time to meet me.
