Do you feel that the path you are on is not leading you to where you want to go? Do you feel misunderstood in your relationship? Is it difficult to explain why you feel the way you do? Do you struggle with the loss of a loved one due to immigration difficulties? Do you feel your children don't understand their roots? Living in a new and different culture and community can be very difficult for families, especially children living in both worlds. I would be honored to join you on your journey to understanding and definition.
When emotion and reason don't connect and the inner voice tells you to get help. That's when it's time to change your path or at least know where you are. It is my privilege to support you to look for all solutions available.
My experience living in and working with the Latino community have allowed me a unique perspective and a great deal of experience helping others.
¿Sientes que el camino en el que estás no te lleva a donde quieres ir? ¿Te sientes incomprendido en tu relación? ¿Es difícil explicar por qué te sientes asi? ¿Luchas con la pérdida de un ser querido debido a dificultades de inmigración? ¿Sientes que tus hijos no entienden sus raíces? Vivir en una cultura y comunidad nueva y diferente puede ser muy difícil para las familias, especialmente para los niños que viven en ambos mundos. Me sentiría honrada de unirme a usted en su viaje hacia la comprensión y la definición.
Cuando la emoción y la razón no se conectan y la voz interior te dice que busques ayuda. Ahí es cuando es hora de cambiar tu camino o al menos saber dónde estás. Seria un honor de ayudarlo a buscar todas las soluciones disponibles.
Mi experiencia viviendo y trabajando con la comunidad latina me ha dado una perspectiva única junto con una gran cantidad de experiencia ayudando a otros. Para ver mas vaya a nuestra pagina web www.hablemotherapy.org. Para dejar mensaje en espanol, tambien puede llamar al (224)288-5976.
