It is my intention with this practice to offer a safe space to all individuals, with a special interest in my Latinx community and other members of the BIPOC community. Seeking help for your emotional health can be an intimidating and vulnerable process, and for people from marginalized communities, the process can be even more daunting. Many of us are rightfully skeptical of a broken system influenced by prejudice, racism, implicit bias or outright bigotry. Add to that the heavy stigma around mental health that exists within many of our own communities and families and asking for help can feel impossible.
