Karina Ramos MSW, PEL
I am a true believer that everything happens for a reason. Although I consider myself a planner who enjoys planning for just about everything, I also know that things don’t always work out exactly how you prepare them. Take the cool part of my story that connected me with Your Story Counseling, for example! Since August 2020, I’ve served here as their first-ever Program Intern. Something I never planned for now feels like a push from the universe to have the opportunity to learn from this group of fantastic therapists.
I am bilingual and have my Master's degree in School Social Work from Governor State University, and carrier my Professional Educator License (PEL). I’ve enjoyed the experiences I’ve gained from my volunteer work, specifically the privilege I had to be a part of the Global Brigades in Panama for legal empowerment and Ghana for public health. My mission is to empower and advocate for the vulnerable population. I plan to use my educational endeavors to achieve my ultimate desire to help those who need it the most.
In addition to my internship, classes, and involvement in a mentor program for young children, I also have the privilege of working at a senior assisted living home. In this role, I serve people from many walks of life, including veterans and those who need support for various mental health and relational difficulties, such as memory care, grief, and loss. I am honored to hold the title of Your Story Counseling’s First Intern and am thankful for the opportunity to support and learn from the therapists at Your Story Counseling
