    About Elena

    I am a licensed psychotherapist (she/her) in the state of California. I have a Masters in Counseling Psychology from the California Institute of Integral Studies, with a focus on community mental health. I have practiced as a therapist in the Bay Area and Los Angeles, and have had the pleasure of working with individuals, couples, families, and teens. I feel strongly and passionately about working with clients who feel isolated or different, or that they are either too much or not enough for the world around them. 

    My family arrived in Los Angeles from Mexico and Southern parts of the U.S. I identify as multiracial, and I understand the feeling of non-belonging, displacement, and impact of intergenerational trauma. I can also understand the stigma that comes with seeking therapy, and believe that healing is our right. 

    I indulge and delight in the healing power of 80s punk music, tarot, astrology, Los Angeles history, exploring hidden gems, being in the desert, and exploring and learning about all things archetypal and metaphysical. I fiercely love this giant and complicated city.

    My Mission

    I feel passionately about working with people who feel isolated or different, or that they are either too much or not enough for the world around them. Learning self-confidence, self-acceptance, and freedom from judgement can be daunting, and I am committed to helping clients reach their goals.
