Salvador Hernandez is a Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker (LISCW).  He is first generation, born and raised in South Omaha within a Mexican family, with roots originally from Guanajuato, Mexico.  Growing up, Salvador had many different experiences, some were beautiful and happy, while others were tragic and sometimes traumatic.  During these times, he was fortunate to have a strong support system, even when he would push his support away.  Salvador's life experiences and support he had, are what motivates him to be a mental health therapist.  The desire to help others through difficult moments, especially when things seem hopeless. 

 

Salvador has over 15 years of experience working with children, families, and individuals in both San Jose, CA and Omaha, NE.  He have a vast history working with families and individuals that have experienced trauma, including: complex, generational, racial, historical, and systemic.  He also has experience working with survivors of sexual, physical, and emotional abuse.  In his practice, Salvador utilizes cultural values as a key to healing emotional/generational wounds.  Storytelling and art are some of the interventions that he uses, along with talk therapy.  Salvador is bilingual in English/Spanish and can conduct therapy in both languages.  His ideal clients are adults who are wanting to work on past trauma, feel depressed/anxious, or/are struggling with an addiction.
