Paola Gonzalez Fusilier
Hola! My name is Paola Gonzalez Fusilier.
I am a trauma therapist with years of experience working with children, adults, and families from diverse backgrounds. I work with little clients as young as 2 years old, parents, adults of any age, and families.
My experience at various nonprofits and private practice settings has allowed me to serve clients from all walks of life. Many of my clients have experienced intimate partner or family violence, sexual violence and abuse, childhood trauma, post-traumatic stress disorder, family dynamics issues, depression, anxiety, foster care & adoption, educational issues, racial trauma, immigration and acculturation issues, grief and loss, ADHD, and other psychiatric disorders. I have worked collaboratively with support systems, psychiatrists, hospitals, teachers and school officials.
I am a LGBTQ+ ally. I am inclusive of all religions. I have a deep respect for my clients and find the therapeutic journey one of the most sacred experiences.
I believe in the therapeutic power of play and see play as a child’s language with which they process life’s struggles. I am passionate about adoption, foster care, and serving children from hard places.
I am a first-generation Mexican American, a child of immigrant parents, and have a deep understanding of cultural identity. My passion to help others began as a young girl and I believe it is God’s calling on my life. It is my honor and privilege to be part of my client’s healing journey!
