Liz Hinojosa

Liz is a first-generation college student and a Mexican Chicana. She is of Chichimeca and Coahuiltecan indigenous ancestry. Her personal commitments are building relationships with our plant allies, radical self-love as a method of decolonization. Supports the repopulation of the Monarch butterflies. She is redreaming, recreating, and reinventing herself, exploring enlightenment through darkness via Tezcatlipoca (the smoking mirror), and the ancient Mexica dream rituals.

Liz specializes in working with adults who live with depression, anxiety, PTSD, and grief. She also works with people who have experienced domestic violence, sexual abuse, other emotional traumas, and artistic/creative people too.

Why work with me?

It is essential and powerful when you have a trusting relationship with your therapist. To have a space created where you know that you are seen, heard, and safe. I personally consider it an honor to witness stories and experiences and a privilege to walk alongside a person’s path of healing. I value the importance of decolonizing mental health, especially for BIPOC, and weaving in intersectionality, social justice, and spirituality. After all, we are multi-dimensional beings having a human experience. Honoring intergenerational trauma to release it and healing ourselves, our ancestors, and future generations. I also value traditional indigenous healing practices, especially dream work. I stand side by side with my clients to support them in reinventing themselves and living the life that they dream of manifesting!
