Work Force Career Supervisor,
“I had the pleasure to have met Dr. Plasencia at my organization where she started a group in our department that she called 'Reflective Space.' We would meet twice a month and it was a moment for all of us to share how we felt about certain work related issues, finding practical ways to becoming more functional at work. I was very much at peace at those moments, and I miss them. Dr. Plasencia provided precious guidance and support.”
Maria J. Prieto, PhD. Clinical Neuropsychologist, private practice
"I have known Dr. Plasencia for over 20 years. She has consistently displayed a dedication to her work that is seldom matched. Eager to stand by our practice's ethical and professional standards, Dr. Plasencia has also approached complex cases with great compassion."
