Speaker Bio

Adriana Alejandre is a Psychotherapist, Consultant and nationally recognized Speaker for mental health advocacy from Sun Valley, CA. She has a Masters in Clinical Psychology from Pepperdine University. Adriana owns her own bilingual group practice, EMDR and Trauma Therapy focusing on wellness for Black, Brown and Indigenous people.

Adriana is the founder of Latinx Therapy, a national directory of Latinx Therapists and global, bilingual podcast that provides education to combat the stigma of mental health on the ground, and in the digital spaces. In 2019, she won Hispanizice’s TECLA award for Best Social Good Content award, and in 2020 she was one of 5 Latinx influencers chosen for the #YoSoy Instagram/Hispanic Heritage Foundation award, & the 2022 Jim Preis Memorial Award from the Mental Health Advocacy Series.

In 2021, she launched her a community non-profit with a program called Therapy Dinero to create access to therapy services.

Adriana was born and raised in a lower socioeconomic area of the San Fernando Valley in Los Angeles. She was raised by a strict Guatemalan mother and a Mexican father who both had many side-hustles since they immigrated from their countries. Adriana looked up to them and grew up knowing that she, too, wanted to be an entrepreneur. Adriana’s mission in the spaces she has established is to create spaces in the real world, and virtual world to spark dialogue about mental health struggled and strengths in the Latinx community. Adriana currently lives in the San Fernando Valley with her husband, 13-year old son, 15-year old step-son and their two dogs.

She is available for speaking engagements, workshops, consultations and influencer collaborations. She recently worked with Breyers ice cream and created a digital toolkit on boundaries and taboo topics for multigenerational Latinx households.
