Aimee Monterrosa

Aimee is a Los Angeles based licensed therapist, who is a passionate advocate for challenging mental health stigmas in communities of color. She is an LA native, with Mexicana and Salvadoreno roots, with a heart of gold. Aimee believes that the mind, body and soul are connected and healing happens when folks learn how to love healthily, cope, and cultivate resiliency while overcoming the adversity. She comes with 10 years’ experience working in the mental health field and is a graduate of the USC School of Social Work, masters program. Her goal is to keep the conversation around mental health and wellness simple, purposeful, relatable and trauma-informed. Her belief is that the more people know about their mental health and the impact it has in their lives and communities, the more we prioritize the practice of healing and self-care. Growing up in a family that didn’t always believe in therapy, Aimee, recognized the need to rewrite this cultural narrative of healing and attention to emotional wellness in order to remind Latinx communities, communities of color and women (especially) that mental is health is wealth, healing has always been rooted in us and overall wellness and self-care should always remain a priority.
