Therapy for Latinx
Perhaps You Are:
A high-functioning person that doesn't typically ask for help--in fact, folks usually come to YOU for help, but now you're feeling stuck...
An accomplished, professional - but still struggle with the sense of being an impostor or a fraud...
Giving your all to everyone and everything, but are neglecting your own needs in the process...
Perceived as confident and competent, una Chingona, that has everything together externally, but internally, you are struggling with self-doubt, loneliness, or insecurities...
Exhausted of working twice as hard to be seen as an equal to your white counterparts
Maybe You Are:
Struggling to balance your needs and wants with the Latinx cultural and familal expectations
Feeling exhausted by continued efforts to prove yourself as an equal or good enough in comparison to your white peers or co-workers
Growing weary and fatigued by the seemingly endless microaggressions or racist experiences that you experience
Feeling misunderstood or missed by others who do not see the complexity of your intersectional identities
If you resonated with any of the statements, our therapists are here to help. We are passionate about empowering Latinx and Hispanic individuals develop healthier relationships with themselves and with others. Our therapists can help you to become aware of and to reframe your limiting beliefs, to break self-sabotaging patterns and to heal from your past traumas. By addressing the barriers in your life that are keeping you from being the best person you can be, you can create a life that feels more meaningful and congruent with your values--a life where you are thriving, not merely surviving.
Culturally-Affirming, Decolonized Therapy
We firmly believe that you deserve to work with someone who understands and affirms your Latinx identities and your Latinx culture. We know that a therapist that does not understand your culture, can never fully understand you.
Decolonized therapy is a framework of healing from the dehumanizing effects of colonization, white supremacy, and systemic oppression. We de-center mental health away from the dominant, white narrative, and instead, we center our own rich familial, cultural, and ancestral wisdom, experiences, knowledge, and strengths. In this way, our culturally-affirming approach honors the cultural practices, traditions, and creativity that have enabled our Latinx communities to overcome oppression and build resilience.
Our highly trained therapists utilize an anti-oppressive, culturally-informed approach to understand dynamics of power, privilege, and oppression that have shape our clients' identities and lived experiences. For Latinx folx, an important part of our work is healing the wounds from racial stress and racial trauma (microaggressions, racism, violence, stereotypes, poverty, and discrimination).
Anti-Oppressive, Decolonized therapy is the therapy you have been looking for - the therapy each of us deserves.
Our team of Latinx therapists understand first-hand the unique stressors that Latinx people face as they navigate the challenges living and working in a society that is embedded in systemic oppression. Using a collaborative, integrative therapeutic approach, we will makes use of both our personal and professional experiences as a Latinx therapists, our extensive clinical experience working with Latinx/Hispanic & BIPOC individuals, AND your unique set of strengths and resources.
