Often the way that we experience or interpret situations in life are based on our own cultural heritages, expectations and mores. A culturally sensitive therapist will not necessarily be an expert on your particular background however, they will be committed to understanding the impact that culture, race, ethnicity and other intersectional specifics influence your day to day existence and well-being. Instead of questioning, pathologizing or even gaslighting you regarding how culture informs your experience in the world, they will validate, believe and partner with you to understand those unique experiences.
Are you interested in working with someone who is committed to learning about your cultural heritage and how it impacts your everyday life? If so, give me a call.
