Zenaida Kleiner, LMFT
Hello/ Hola! I am a bilingual Latinx/a Psychotherapist providing services from a Decolonized perspective. I hold myself to be an advocate for my clients. Life has proven to be difficult for people in different ways for many different reasons. I believe in the capabilities of people and uplifting them to help them build a reality that they foresee that is worth living. Our lifestyles and occupations have disconnected us from what we intuitively know to be important; self-love, belonging, family, community, and having confidence in knowing that we all matter. Through my personal experiences and my work with families, I discovered a need to mend the ruptures in people and families. Therefore, I have diversified my knowledge and personal influences by including Attachment, Cognitive-Behavioral, Developmental Psychology, Neuro-Psychological, Humanistic-Existential theories in my practice. I believe in honoring Indigenous knowledge rooted in nature as well as the intricacies of the Gut-Brain connection. I have a passion to provide a better service to our Folx that do not meet the current mental health paradigms and colonized diagnostic tools.
