BEHIND LOVED BY DESTINY
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 platform dedicated to promoting personal growth through self-love and self-awareness.
Destiny is passionate about helping people transcend their current circumstances through self-awareness and goal-setting. In her spare time, she enjoys writing about her experiences through the lens of the lessons they teach her, hopeful that they will help someone else! In addition to managing the platform, Destiny supports beautiful souls on their personal journeys through 1:1 Life Coaching!
In her coaching, she 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".
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 events all over NYC, and 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!
