Deniss Pleiner, M.A LMFT

Deniss Pleiner was born in Guerrero, Mexico and on the Fourth of July 1996, her family officially moved to Los Angeles, CA. Her lived experience as a woman of color and a Mexican Immigrant is what drives her passion for helping BIPOC Adults build happy and fulfilling lives. 


Deniss is committed to destigmatizing mental health and promoting well-being in historically marginalized communities beyond her work with her individual clients, which lead her to grow her individual practice into what it is now: TOC Therapy. Deniss has cultivated a team of dedicated and talented therapists who share her commitment to empowering BIPOC adults on their journey towards improved mental health. With her guidance, TOC Therapy continues to provide transformative care, enabling individuals to overcome obstacles, discover resilience, and thrive.

Deniss' dedication, expertise in BIPOC mental health, and commitment to supporting BIPOC adults have resulted in invitations to lead workshops at community, educational, and professional organizations. Deniss has participated in panels and lead workshops on BIPOC Mental health for organizations that include: Pepperdine, UCLA, CalTech, Act Blue, Prospanica, NSPA, and more. She has also been featured in various podcasts including CNN Radio's Diversifying, and Werk Stories.
