Aug 3 2020 • 17 mins

Perla, a paralegal, uses her training to help her dad navigate the federal COVID-19 relief process. But, when Perla takes charge, personalities clash and roles reverse. An old father-daughter dynamic comes back, and she’s left feeling undermined. A family therapist who works with Latino clients returns to guide us in finding better ways to get through these trying moments.

Our expert this week is Claudia Cuevas, a licensed marriage and family therapist in Mission Viejo, CA. Claudia owns her own practice.
