Strengthening minds across borders.
Online counseling for multicultural women of color.
So you’ve arrived in a new destination, a new culture – different to that of your own. Or perhaps you simply grew up in a different culture than your parents did and are realizing how much of an impact that has had on your perspective of life. You start to notice that some people consistently like to ask or insinuate the question “where are you really from?”. In that moment you feel as if you belong everywhere and nowhere at the same time. Sound familiar?
Maybe it’s the color of your skin, your accent, and receiving strange looks from the locals on top of the overwhelm of traveling that may make you feel as if you don’t belong anywhere. Have you ever felt that?
Being the daughter of immigrants has its own unique challenges that others can’t understand, and lately it has started to take a toll on your mental health. On top of that, being a woman of color in today’s politically charged climate is a feat of its own. Even if you carry it well, it doesn’t mean the load isn’t heavy. It can be exhausting and emotionally draining having to explain to others the challenges that minorities face. In fact, it can be so overwhelming you may choose to ignore that part of your identity entirely.
If you are feeling isolated, you are not alone.
It can be hard to find someone to open up to that understands what you are going through. Not only does the stigma around mental health in our communities propose a challenge, but the lack of representation of women of color in the mental health field makes finding a therapist to open up to about topics such as racial trauma even more difficult.
This is where Global Citizen Therapy steps in. I provide a safe space for you to begin the deep inner healing work you need. I hold space in a judgement free zone for you to talk about anything that you have been struggling with. Whether it’s anxiety, depression, relationships, racial trauma, or something else; I am here to help you. My goal as a therapist is to not only help women of color like you feel better, but for you to come out stronger on the other side of this. It is my goal to ensure you feel empowered for taking that first step toward self-growth.
