About

Hola! I'm Alejandra Peña, LMFT-S, LPC-S and I'm a Latina and bilingual therapist and supervisor providing mental health services in Spanish and English in Austin, TX  to individuals, couples and families, and providing supervision to new clinicians. Anna Arreola, LCSW is also a Latina therapist in my practice. Anna is licensed in both Texas and Mississippi and offers telehealth services for people living in either state.

From Ale: No single “type” of therapy is the correct one for everyone, so I work with my clients and draw from various modalities to help them figure out what will work best to achieve their goals. I use a trauma informed, feminist, collaborative and culturally responsive approach to therapy, and I’m a strong believer in the power of healing through connection and collaboration. My initial focus with my clients is to create a safe space for you to share your story in a judgement free zone as we work on building a genuine and strong therapeutic relationship. I worked for over 6.5 years in a local non-profit that serves survivors of domestic and sexual violence. This is a cause I am passionate about, and it’s an opportunity that has allowed me to work closely with immigrant and Latinx/Hispanic survivors. I’m starting to invest more time in my private practice to provide longer term therapeutic services and also provide trauma-informed therapy to survivors of other types of trauma. During the past several years, I have supported adults, children, teenagers and families from diverse backgrounds and experiences in their personal healing process; helping individuals and families heal from family violence, sexual assault, sexual abuse, traumas related to systemic violence and other traumas. I am passionate about working with individuals, couples and families from diverse backgrounds, identities and experiences, including people of color and the LGBTQ+ community. I specialize in providing support for Latinx/Hispanic and bi/multi multicultural clients. I also provide immigration evaluations to clients to who are seeking humanitarian relief in the United States. Currently, I only have availability for immigration evaluations. 

From Anna: I am dedicated to racial equity and healing, and I am passionate about supporting Latinx communities. I show up with the intention of helping people by incorporating a relational and strengths-based approach. I enjoy working with people from diverse backgrounds, experiences, and identities who are committed to their healing journey and therapy process. My experience extends from direct client services to supervising and training as well as being a group facilitator. I help clients with various mental health challenges including trauma, depression, grief, anxiety, and major life transitions. I like to integrate various modalities to best support my client’s needs including CBT, CPT, and EMDR. I would love the opportunity to get to know you and being a part of your healing journey. I am currently NOT accepting new individual/adult clients for telehealth services in English or Spanish.
