About Therapy, Etc.

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.

Meet the Host

Patricia Alvarado

Patricia Alvarado is a daughter of immigrants and first generation Mexican American. She grew up believing that mental health meant you were crazy and difficult conversations were considered a taboo. She has lived in various places throughout her life, including Ensenada, Baja California, Mexico where as a young teenager she noticed herself navigating her identity as both a proud Mexicana and an Americana. Today, her path has led her to the mental health field as a licensed psychotherapist and podcast host, continuing the conversations surrounding mental health and how it is present in many things that we naturally do.
