Lorenia Villaescusa

My name is Lorenia Villaescusa, and I have been a Bereavement and Community Services Counselor with Hospice of Yuma since June of 2021.  I graduated from Cetys University in Mexicali, Baja California in 2010 with a master’s degree in psychology and a concentration in family therapy.  I am a certified Grief Recovery Specialist providing support to individuals and families in our community.  My professional goal is to assist people to learn to walk their own grief journey and grow from it.   


Emilia Munoz

My name is Emilia Munoz. I have been a bereavement and Community Service Counselor with Hospice of Yuma since April of 2022. I graduated from University of Phoenix with a Master of Science in Counseling/Marriage, Family, and Child Therapy in 2013. I am a Certify Grief Recovery Specialist, and some of my duties are to provide emotional support through different grief support groups and 1 on 1 grief counseling. Accompany people through their grief journey is one of the most gratifying experiences that I have experienced. It has helped me be more compassionate and listen with my heart.
