Brenda Castro

          “Every time you stumble, start over. Take it one breath at a time.”- Henepola Gunaratana

Have you tried everything you can think of to live your best life? Has life found a way to surprise you again and again? Whether you consider therapy a last resort or a starting point for prioritizing your well-being, asking for help is a sign of strength; You deserve to be seen, understood, and supported. You may be facing the fight-flight-freeze response and wondering what to do next. You may be feeling the weight of the years of your life ahead. Or you may be feeling anguished and wish you had never been born. I want to foster a safe, motivating relationship with you so you can explore, learn, heal, and grow into your full potential. 

As a queer Hispanic female who has had to overcome years of mental health struggles, I know how challenges can be subtle yet enduring or short-lived yet overwhelming. I grew up as the daughter of Mexican immigrants with English as my second language, and have trudged through challenges of my own in various aspects of life, such as religion, diet, gender identity, sexuality, and the nuances of deciding on and establishing a career. Whether you are fighting suicidal ideation or pushing yourself to thrive, we can strive towards your goals together. 

I received a Bachelors of Science in Joint Computer Science-Mathematics from Harvey Mudd College and am currently completing my Masters program in Mental Health Counseling at Hunter College.

You are the captain of your ship, and as your therapist, I am your mate. I will meet you where you are and draw on all my knowledge and experience to help you navigate the untamed seas of life.
