Dr. Trujillo is a licensed counseling and sport psychologist who obtained her doctorate degree from Purdue University in Counseling Psychology in 2019.
During and post-graduate school, she spent several years in college athletic departments where she conducted individual, group, and team interventions to address concerns both in and out of sport. She provided mental health guidance and training to athletic trainers, coaches, and the broader athletics department. From there, she became a primary therapist and the program lead for a PHP/IOP program for high performance athletes with eating disorders at a treatment facility in Denver, CO. She built a sport-informed team of professionals to treat all aspects of identity/life for elite performers with eating disorders.

In 2022, she made the jump to private practice where she works with individuals and consults with teams and administrations for a variety of organizations across all sport domains and levels. She focuses primarily on clinical issues pertaining to grief/loss, eating disorders, trauma, perfectionism, identity development, and performance psychology. She is currently the company psychologist for the Colorado Ballet, where she is working to implement mental health screenings, protocols, individual and group therapy services, education, and training for dancers and staff.
