Deniss Pleiner, LMFT

I support first generation professionals, particularly BIWOC, manage work stress, improve self-esteem, and navigate difficult family relationships.

I use various trauma-informed interventions which include mindfulness, body-centered awareness, cognitive behavioral therapy, and inner child healing. I take a baby-steps approach to healing generational trauma and learning new tools that fit you and your vision for yourself, so that you can truly create long-term healing. 

My experience and work in BIPOC Mental health have resulted in invitations to participate in panels and lead workshops for various professional, educational, and community organizations including: Pepperdine, UCLA, CalTech, Act Blue, Prospanica, NSPA, and more. I have also been featured in various podcasts including CNN Radio's Diversifying, and Werk Stories.
