Breona Mendoza, MA LMHC & Sex Therapist

Colorful Therapy

Uses she/her pronouns.

My approach to therapy is founded on the belief that all people are inherently deserving of connection, liberation, and pleasure. This is made incredibly difficult by the systems that undermine our power, agency, and vibrance. My passion is helping my clients embrace their power, take more risks, and make the necessary steps to be more unapologetically themselves. Through a blend of compassionate understanding, refreshing honesty, playful challenging and collaborative problem solving, I help people establish the tools and self-compassion they need to change their lives and relationships. I work with teens, young adults, adults, and couples around issues such as anxiety, identity, sexuality, relationships, unprocessed trauma, and self-compassion.

 

I have worked in community mental health, teen health centers, domestic and sexual violence organizations, and in schools for over 10 years. I have received specialized training in sex therapy, eye movement desensitization and reprocessing therapy (EMDR), youth mental health care, racial and cultural trauma/healing, acceptance and commitment therapy, gender affirming care, art therapy, and dialectical behavioral therapy. Through all my experience, I have learned to take an integrative approach to care that incorporates many different techniques and modalities to best meet the needs of the folks I am working with. 

 

As a loud and proud member of the LGBTQ+ community, I am dedicated to working with queer and trans folks of all ages to navigate the intersections of relationships, gender, oppression, trauma, intimacy, and sexuality. I particularly love supporting teens and young adults as they work to understand who they are and navigate the complex challenges and emotions of high school, college, and young adulthood. Above all else, I strive to create an open space where people can be more of themselves.
