In Episode 11 of Therapy, Etc. Podcast, we have Dr. Veronica Eyo who is a Bilingual Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Los Angeles. She specializes in working with mothers, new and seasoned, throughout the triumphs and struggles of motherhood.
She also has a special place in her heart for working with students, especially first-generation students in providing support throughout their academic journey. She recently completed her EdD where she researched the factors that contribute to the success of student mamas pursuing their higher education goals. Her research was fueled by her own journey of getting her doctorate as a student mother.
Within this episode, Veronica shares about her experiences growing up AfroLatina, having a Mexican mother and a Nigerian father. She shares that within her upbringing there were not many words to help her identify with both of her cultures. Veronica discusses how she navigated her biracial heritage within her upbringing and the things she wants to instill within her own children.
If any of the experiences Veronica had resonated with you, please reach out to her via Instagram or through her website.

The Therapy, Etc. Podcast is a bi-monthly conversation with Patricia Alvarado, a licensed mental health therapist in Los Angeles, CA. Within Therapy, Etc., Patricia uses her clinical skills along with everyday situations to help normalize mental health and decrease the stigma related to mental health services. As a first generation Mexican American Latinx woman, she has noticed that many everyday experiences encompass mental health. As she began to lean into the question, “are you analyzing me?” she discovered that the movies that we watch, food that we eat, the way that we take care of ourselves, among other things, share one common thing: mental health. Join her as she explores various topics through the lens of a first generation Latinx woman and digs deep into all things mental health.
