  • About Muriel Casamayor

    My name is Muriel Casamayor (She/her/Ella) and I am a Latinx psychotherapist licensed in the state of California (LMFT License #116554). I have worked in the mental health field professionally since 2010. However, I have been practicing psychotherapy since 2014.

    I was born and raised in Peru, and I am a first-generation immigrant. I understand the struggles with immigrating to a new country and understanding a new culture. Adaptation isn’t easy and sometimes is faced with traumatic experiences and little to no support. I am passionate about working with my Latinx community and other minorities. I am a big domestic violence advocate. I have worked with Los Angeles Police Department helping victims of domestic violence, which included working with children and their families. I have been able to help families to become survivors but also to thrive in life.

    I have provided mental health evaluations and therapy for multiple individuals, struggling with a wide range of moderate to severe psychiatric disorders, including Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, psychotic disorders, depression, and anxiety, as well as issues related to domestic violence, substance abuse, separation from loved ones and dislocation. I have also done work assessing children’s attachments to their parents, as well as the impact on children of parental separation and the impact of an increase of stressors at home.

    Education

    I graduated from California State University, Los Angles with my Bachelor’s in Psychology. I received my Masters in Marriage and Family Therapy from Hope International University.
