  • Welcome Message

    Mi nombre es Elsa and I identify as a first generation Mexican-American female. I enjoy a good cup of coffee in the morning and I am a sucker for pop-culture. I was born and raised in Los Angeles and majored in Sociology + Social Work in order to learn how to address the disparities I witnessed within my community.

    I have a passion for servicing the Latinx community through mental health guidance. I specialize in treating trauma, depression, anxiety, and identity/ role confusion through the use of empowerment and resilience based methods.

    Having my own experience as a first-generation Latina, I have a strength for working with tweens (ages 10-12), youth (13-18), transition aged youth (18-24) and adults with a particular focus on girls/women.

    My sessions are structured in a conversational and strength based method. I believe in highlighting peoples' strengths and guiding them through the discovery of their inner guerrera (warrior).
