hello there.

I’m Vivianne castillo

I'm the Founder of HmntyCntrd®,  a counseling & human service professional who made a career switch into the UX and Tech Industry, a recovering-from-corporate-America Black woman, an absurdly passionate self-care advocate, a resident of the land where the pizza runs deep, an adaptable and ambitious pragmatic, and am committed to choosing courage over comfort in every facet of my life.

The HmntyCntrd team and I are passionate about leveraging our intersectional expertise across counseling, sociology, business, intercultural communication, and design to create unique tools and training that support all the aspects of personal and professional development.
