BEHIND THE DIGITAL VEIL
MY NAME IS Destiny.
I AM ON A QUEST TO DISCOVER WHY.
Destiny is a daydreaming creative nerd, fascinated by all things psychology and empathetic enough to remember that every diagnosis carries a story. She resides and was raised in Washington Heights , which sits comfortably at the tip of Manhattan, New York and desperately needs a name change to "Little Dominican Republic". When she's not fighting for equitable access to higher education for students of color you can find her managing, Loved by Destiny, a brand dedicated to stimulating self-love through self-awareness via digital content and community events.
Destiny uses a blended approach that fuses Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Motivational Interviewing to help her digital and IRL community identify the source of faulty thought patterns often rooted in societal and familial conditioning - a process she's coined as "Unlearning Survival".
The goal of Loved by Destiny is to incite a movement that encourages people, especially womxn, to empower themselves through mastery of their thoughts and the unlearning of conditioned habits, in pursuit of their best and truest self.
The platform's content is influenced by Destiny's witty, no-nonsense, but always super loving voice and often contains (what she subjectively deems) funny anecdotes about an old-school Dominican upbringing.
She is a proud SUNY New Paltz Psychology graduate and Columbia University-trained Licensed Master of Social Work. In June of 2019, Destiny was honored with the SUNY New Paltz 40 Under 40 award in support of her work within Washington Heights to increase college attainment, and mindfulness! She facilitates womxn's circles at MindBodySoul Yoga, a community yoga studio, and most recently hosted a Mindfulness Workshop which one of the participants called "soul-saving". Her self-published interactive journal Unlearning Survival has found new homes in 14 states and 4 countries outside of the United States! She mothers the sassiest 5-year-old and cuddliest pooch in New York City, and really wants to be done wedding planning in November. <3
Your truest self is waiting.
