About Alejandra Luna, LCSW

Alejandra Luna (pronoun: they/them) is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker whose passion is creating healthy and safe environments for and with LGBTQ+ people and those who love them. Alejandra received their BA in Global Studies and Spanish Literature from University of California, Santa Barbara and a Masters in Social Work (mental health concentration) from California State University at Fullerton. Alejandra has over 15-years of experience advocating, training, supporting, healing and empowering children, youth, adults and families within the social service and health professions to learn how to live their best and authentic lives. Some of the treatment approaches that Alejandra has effectively used with individuals, couples and families are trauma-focused-cognitive behavior therapy, mindfulness/meditation-based, psychodynamic, solution-focused, family systems and motivation interviewing.

As a Peer Specialist at OC ACCEPTS, a Social Work Therapist Intern at Hoag hospital, and a Bilingual Therapist at Western Youth Services (WYS), Alejandra has helped LGBTQ+ individuals and their families learn how to build relationships that were focused on the love, understanding and acceptance of each other, which greatly decreased mental health symptoms like depression, anxiety, cutting, and suicidal thoughts.

As a LGBTQ+ cultural competency trainer, Alejandra developed trainings used to assist mental health professionals, non-profit administrators, social workers and educators in creating inclusive, accessible and supportive environments for LGBTQ+ people in the work place, healthcare field, and in schools.

Alejandra helped to create a LGBTQ+ task force that ensured that mental health services were affirming and accessible to LGBTQ+ youth in the five regions that make up WYS (North and South Orange County).

As a transgender-identified person and a survivor of abuse, Alejandra learned early in their life that life is full of hardship, which in turn can lead one to feel very lost and alone. Alejandra has also learned that the path to emotional healing is about learning how to break those unhealthy chains that bound one to their painful past, and this can only be done with the help from culturally competent and intentional mental health therapy. These personal experiences have fed Alejandra’s passion for doing healing work, which lead them to become a mental health therapist, focused on teaching people how to see themselves as resilient, having value, and  being worthy of love.
