Hi, I am Dr. Lisette Sanchez. I am a licensed psychologist specializing in Imposter Phenomenon (aka imposter syndrome) and stress management. Today is World Mental Health Day AMA.
Update: This was my first ever AMA and I learned so much. I answered as many questions as I could and may try to answer a few more later. Thank you all for taking the time to ask me questions. If you are interested in connecting follow me on Social Media and if you would like to learn more about the Impostor Phenomenon consider inviting me to be a Speaker at your next event.
I am the eldest daughter of hard working-class immigrants from Mexico and El Salvador. I am the first in my family to complete high school and pursue and higher education. As the first, I encountered unique challenges. My lived experiences are what have fueled my passion to pursue a career in mental health.
In my work as a psychologist, I help individuals heal from intergenerational trauma and break intergenerational cycles. I run a virtual practice called Calathea Wellness where I provide therapy and coaching services to clients spanning first-gen and BIPOC communities.
In addition to those services, I contribute to publications like Hip Latina and Wondermind. I also run mental health workshops for Fortune 500 companies across the country—supporting their Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Belonging efforts and employee resource group programming.
In my own healing, I have learned to look back at my experiences and understand how special it was that I was my family’s voice in the world. Now, I am working to use my influence and expertise to be the voice for my fellow BIPOC ＆ First Gen folks and to help them find their voice.
