Spanish speaking therapist now available
My name is Jessica Ngotngamwong and I am thankful to have the opportunity to work with Crossroads and would like to offer services to the Hispanic community, military community, and crisis pregnancy population. I would also like to continue to work with children and their families. I have my License in Social Work (LCSW). I graduated in August of 2010 from Oklahoma University with my Masters in Social Work and in May 2005 with my Bachelors in Social Work from Oral Roberts University.
I have been working with Spanish families since I started working in the Social Work field in the summer of 2005 through the present. I enjoy working with the Hispanic community. I help to advocate and empower the clients that I work with to bridge the cap of the services that they need within the school and in the community. I have worked in the school setting with elementary school children since March 2009 primarily with Spanish speaking families and advocating for their needs in the school setting.
I also hope to broaden my services to include working with the military families. My husband is in the Oklahoma National Guard and we have experienced three deployments together and he was also part of helping with the recovery of the community from the hurricane Katrina in New Orleans, Louisiana. I have experienced raising children while he was deployed and would like to offer services to support military children and their families as well.
I also have experience with working with the crisis pregnancy population during my time in studying Social Work. I spent some time at Margaret Hudson and Mend during my bachelor’s experience. I also did some individual and group counseling during my time with Crisis Pregnancy Outreach (CPO) during my masters schooling.
The populations that I have specifically worked with and have experience working with are children with attention difficulties, anxiety and depression, and over coming trauma that they have experienced in their life. I enjoy doing family therapy because I believe that the family has the most valuable opportunity to affect their children’s success at school and in their every day life.
