For a person experiencing anxiety and depression simple, everyday activities, such as going to work, speaking in public, seeing friends for dinner or talking to strangers can become monumental tasks that often result in debilitating symptoms. If any of this is true for you there is hope.

Life is a journey, and from time to time, we all face challenges that we would benefit from discussing with a thoughtful and compassionate listener. I am such a person, plus I own this practice. While I believe therapy is a collaborative enterprise, I also believe when successful, therapy requires an active and experienced guide. I enjoy working with clients struggling with a variety of personal, family, and mental health issues. I have more than 20 years experience working as a therapist. My therapy orientation is eclectic though my foundation is psychodynamic and strengths based.

Are you feeling overwhelmed and it's interfering with your ability to have good days, in your relationships, sleep, work, or even school? Maybe these overwhelming feelings are coming out of the blue or from a variety of recent/past experiences, leaving you with little room to experience joy, or feel like your authentic self. If you are a person of color, are bicultural, or bilingual these overwhelming feelings can be compounded. You are not alone. Many individuals can feel this way and these overwhelming feelings can be deeply rooted. Yet, they can be healed and managed.

Ever since that terrifying day, you have been feeling helpless and alone. You don’t speak to your family or friends about it because you know they won’t understand. The memory is etched in your mind and you relive the trauma on a regular basis. You say to yourself, “What is wrong with me!” because you go back and forth between crying and shame. You long to get out of this mental state, but you don’t know how or who to ask for help. All you want to do is move forward and enjoy your life again. Start your path towards your goals. Go to that evening social event. Or just see friends without that constant feeling of fear and uneasiness.

Hispanic and Latino Therapists

What makes a Hispanic and Latino therapist effective?

An effective Hispanic and Latino therapist can combine a culturally sensitive lens with proven therapies, such as Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT). They may have an understanding of cultural attitudes to therapy, including potential stigma, and can help a client navigate those concerns. Some clients may also appreciate a therapist who is bilingual and is comfortable conversing with the client in both English and Spanish. Languages spoken are indicated on a therapist’s directory profile.

Why is it important for a therapist to be culturally sensitive?

A culturally sensitive therapist is respectful and considerate of all groups, and may have specific expertise with individuals of a certain ethnicity. These considerations can help a client feel understood and can improve the therapeutic alliance. While some people think highlighting race and ethnicity could promote stereotypes and bias, most agree that knowledge about cultural differences enhances the alliance between therapist and client.

How can I recognize a therapist who has expertise working with Hispanic and Latino clients?

Successful therapy depends a great deal on the relationship between client and therapist. Start by asking the therapist about their overall approach to therapy. You may then wish to ask about the therapist’s educational background and any additional training in cultural sensitivity that they have undertaken.

How might I inquire about a therapist's experience with Hispanic and Latino clients?

Ask a potential therapist whether they've worked with individuals who share this background or whether they’ve worked in these communities. If so, you may wish to ask them to elaborate on ways that they feel especially prepared to work with Hispanic and Latino clients. If they have not worked with such clients, they may know someone who has and be able to make a referral.

Who is included in Psychology Today’s directory of Hispanic and Latino therapists?

The directory of Hispanic and Latino therapists includes providers who have identified their ethnicity in their profiles. Psychology Today uses this information to assist clients in finding a therapist who can provide a cultural match. However, not all therapists choose to disclose their ethnicity in their profiles, and they may not appear in search results for this reason. When the number of therapists near you who identify as Hispanic and Latino is limited, the directory will also show therapists with comprehensive experience working with clients from relevant backgrounds.
