Adela Valenzuela received her Associate Degree in Nursing (ADN) from East Los Angeles College and her Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) and her Master of Science in Nursing (MSN) from the University of Phoenix. She holds Post-Master’s certificates in Family Nurse Practitioner (FNP) from the University of Phoenix and  Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner (PMHNP) from Maryville University. She is also certified in Wound, Ostomy, and Continence (CWOCN) from UCLA. 

When Adela was five years old, her family immigrated to the United States from Central America and settled in California. Her mother was an LVN, and her influence motivated Adela to become a registered nurse. She loves the nursing profession and has always sought to learn new skills. In her work with veterans, she has seen a large need for mental health services. 

Adela works closely with her clients, meeting them where they are psychologically and emotionally and championing them in their achievements. She has a lighthearted personality and brings humor to any situation. Sometimes, solutions-focused therapy is appropriate. For clients who enjoy tasks, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) may be useful.

When she isn’t working, Adela enjoys working on her home. She also likes cooking, drinking wine, and grilling as well as music, dance, and reading Greek mythology.
