Estés was born to a Mestizo (Native American-Hispanic) couple but adopted as an older child by a family of Hungarian refugee immigrants to America.
She is a Ph.D. and a Jungian psychoanalyst in practice in Denver. Her writings draw on both of her heritages, and she is very involved in Mexican and Hungarian story-telling.
