Dr. Xochitl Lisa Vallejos, or Dr. V., has been teaching at the college and graduate level since 2009 and has been a therapist since 2004. Over the years, Dr. V has been increasingly dismayed by the lack of culturally proficient therapists and has made it a priority to challenge the status quo.

Dr. V believes that therapy and psychology need to be radically revisioned to be effective and accessible to clients who hold marginalized identities. While Dr. V works with training therapists on addressing multiple systems of oppression, her speciality is anti-racism in therapy. .
