Hello there! My name is Jessica Rios-Flores, LCSW-R and I am the CEO and Psychotherapist at WomenMix Community. I use she/her/hers pronouns. Our mission consists of empowering women of color and the LGBTQIA+ community to overcome trauma, grief and old wounds. We mix a blend of urban therapists with different expertise who share a common goal of healing. Melissa Perez, LMSW is our part time clinician who provides individual psychotherapy. Melissa uses she/her/hers pronouns. I also provide individual psychotherapy and offer coaching services to other therapists starting and operating a solo therapy practice.
We are native New Yorkers, born of Puerto Rican parents. Our paths to healing sparked our passion for helping others as therapists. Our focus is empowering women to build resilience and heal from trauma, grief, life transitions, anxiety, depression and unresolved childhood issues. We were awarded our master's in social work at Fordham University. We believe in social justice, advocacy, and reducing the stigmatization of mental health for the Latinx/WOC and LGBTQIA+ community.
Our goal is to honor your space, and guide and support you as you restore courage and joy to manifest the life you deserve. Our therapeutic work is trauma-informed, evidence-based, and client-centered. We offer a variety of modalities that will be tailored to your unique circumstances. We aim to help you reach your individual goals. Our goal is for you to thrive, despite any challenges along the way.
