I help WOC struggling with self-confidence learn to establish healthy boundaries and improve the quality of their relationships.
Arlleen Mejia, LMSW
Growing up in a first generation Latino household, it was very uncomfortable and rare to talk about emotions; therefore I feel a deep calling to offer a safe space, free of judgment and full of compassion. In our sessions, we will work hard towards being kinder to yourself and allowing yourself grace.
I am deeply invested in empowering and nourishing your individuality. Sometimes we may outgrow what is no longer aligned with us and it is time to explore what a pivot in our journey will look like, while allowing grace and gratitude in.
Imagine how it would be to feel happier, more confident, & less stressed. Picture your ideal life and relationship. It is possible to achieve! I offer my clinical expertise in a way that feels very real, practical yet compassionate. I strive to help you understand what is happening inside of your body in relation to your relationships and environment to start your healing journey. Let's work together to achieve these goals!

My approach combines affirmative, trauma focused, CBT, DBT, psychodynamic, client centered, solution-focused, and strength-based approaches.
