The time to invest in yourself is now! Life is too short to be unhappy. You have been doing everything for everyone else and now it's time to do you. You are a high achiever who needs some support in dealing with anxiety, depression, or maybe need some relationship help. Let's s those feelings of self-doubt, overwhelm, uncertainty, and take you to where you need to be mentally and emotionally to live your best life..

How it works

Hey there!  If you're reading this, you're probably ready to finally focus on yourself and work some things out. You're tired of feeling burnt out, overwhelmed, on edge, or maybe even depressed. Have you been putting off speaking to a therapist? Or been living life on autopilot but deep down you know something is wrong and you need to talk to someone. My name is Cecilia and I am a first generation, bilingual Licensed Clinical Social worker a.k.a therapist with a little over 8 years of experience working with individuals and families. I am the owner & creator of Imperfect Mellow therapy, where I believe that it is okay to be a “mess” sometimes even in our healing journey to a more mellow life.

About Me


I have worked as a full time psychiatric social worker, assisting individuals experiencing homelessness, substance issues, and severe/persistent mental illnesses. My work has also led me to work as a social worker at Kaiser Permanente as a behavioral health educator. My work has and will always revolve around treating mental health problems. I was born & raised in Los Angeles to an immigrant Mexican family. I got my Masters Degree from USC. I have overcome my own life challenges and believe that through our struggles we build resiliency.


My goal is to support you and hold space for you. I come not only as a therapist but also as your personal cheerleader, secret keeper, and transformation partner. I provide a safe, supportive, non-judgmental environment for you to express yourself and navigate through internal conflict and daily problems.I approach treatment from a Trauma-Informed, Cognitive Behavioral, Culturally Competent, and problem solving perspective, providing guidance and offering tools to help you along the way. My personal goal for you is that you get to a place where you feel you do not need me anymore and you are able to overcome whatever comes your way. I want to work with you in achieving this.


I have experience treating adults, first gens, professionals, millennials, who are struggling with their relationships, healing from inter-generational trauma, going through a difficult life or role transition, struggling with low self-esteem, and/or dealing with depression/anxiety. I work collaboratively with my clients to identify behavior patterns keeping them stuck, learn to set healthy boundaries with others, and gain a new perspective to life challenges. Please reach out if you are ready to take this next step in your journey. I offer a free 15 minute consultation to answer any questions you may have and determine whether we are a good fit for each other. I look forward to getting to know you.
