Biography for Lidia Garcia

Lidia Garcia, Associate Clinical Social Worker

Hello! I’m Lidia Garcia, Associate Clinical Social Worker and Hypnotherapist.

I provide a safe space offering relief from anxieties, self-doubt, and traumas. My person-centered approach is holistic, solution-based, and meets you where you are along your self-love journey.

My practice holistically supports individuals experiencing life transitions or frustrations linked to anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, generational trauma, and imposter syndrome.

I have a special interest in supporting sport equity and mental wellness for women and communities of color by offering inclusion and representation in wellness spaces.
