Jocelyn Chamra-Barrera, LMSW

My name is Jocelyn Chamra-Barrera and I have been a social worker in the Austin community since 2014. I feel incredibly lucky to call myself a social worker and be a part of so many people’s lives.  Being a part of someone’s life during a time in their lives when they need it, has been a fulfilling part of my own journey as a therapist. Here at the Christi Center, unfortunate circumstances bring people to our agency.  My role is to help you find light in the darkness and despair to find a new place of hope.

For those who like the facts, I received my Bachelors in Psychology and my Masters in Social Work from the University of Texas at Austin. I worked extensively with families as a mental health professional at Family Resource Centers and Child Advocacy Centers. I am so excited to join the team at The Christi Center and continue my personal mission of providing support to individuals and families.

In my spare time, I enjoy being making and drinking lots of coffee and spending time with my husband, my fur-children: Karma and Nacho (the cats), and Ezra (the Border Collie/Mix).
