The process of recalling unpleasant events and resolving them through therapy can bring on feelings of frustration, anger and possible depression or anxiety. However, participating in therapy can result in benefits to you by allowing you to better understand yourself, your relationships, your goals, values and sense of self. I look forward to supporting you through your personal therapy journey. I am thrilled you have chosen to work on yourself, you matter, you are worth it and this is one step to becoming the best version of yourself. ​
I am Joanna, a Peruvian therapist that grew up in the city of Cudahy. I received my education from UCLA & USC. I advocate, motivate and educate on innovative healing to achieve a wholesome life. I am thrilled to be able to pull from both my personal and professional experience to provide support through physchedelic assisted treatment in therapy. ​ I work with the re-entry population , the military/ veteran community and promote the importance of radical self-care and how this is what leads to emotional, mental, sexual and physical health. My specialty is working with LGBT+ community and survivors of trauma. I help individuals navigate ancestral healing, generational and inter-generational trauma as well as other conditions that affect our mood, thoughts and behavior. ​
