Profile Headshot


Liliana is a licensed Master Social Worker specializing in neurodiversity and LGBTQIA+ identities. She is passionate about working with clients to deconstruct stigma and build rich, full, and meaningful lives. She has worked extensively within the LGBTQIA+ and disability communities, and views membership to these communities as a privilege rather than a burden. Liliana received her master’s in social work from Silberman School of Social Work, where she specialized in gender, sexuality, and disability, working within the Silberman Center for Sexuality and Gender to create a more inclusive experience for neurodiversity and LGBTQIA+ students. She also worked at the LGBT Center to create disability focused programming. Clinically, she provides DBT, CBT, and other skills-based groups on gender and neurodiversity. She received her B.A. in Ethnic Studies from UC San Diego.
