You want a therapist who "gets" it. Someone who isn't going to just give you lip service or come from a place of discomfort and awkwardness. We're here for you.
Multicultural Therapy is Not Always Easy to Find
Navigating through the world as a person of color, especially in the United States, comes with a unique set of challenges and barriers. Finding a therapist should not be one of them. Members of racial minority groups already face significant barriers to healthcare. Research shows that Black and Latinx individuals, in particular, face inequity in access to healthcare. They experience a diminished quality of life and shortened life expectancy. In regards to mental health care, BIPOC seeking therapy often worry that their therapist might not “get it”. Especially, if the majority of therapists in their area are not members of their cultural group. Although cultural competence is a requirement in most master’s programs for therapists, there is still a well-founded concern. Specifically, the worry that some of the very issues POC may be seeking to unpack and explore in therapy might not be understood or recognized by their therapist (or worse- challenged).

Multicultural Therapy at Golden Vibes Counseling is Here for You
Golden Vibes therapists believe in the dignity and worth of all people. Our therapists must be agents of social change to effectively provide culturally inclusive therapy. Our therapists will affirm the experiences of POC and never question them. Through a combination of factors, we work toward social justice internally and externally. Channeling lived experience is a key factor. Then, intentional reflection and assessment of the therapist’s own racial identity and privileges. Finally, a knowledge of the historical contexts in which institutional racism was born and continues to thrive. Golden Vibes therapists are dedicated to providing quality therapy to folx of all cultural backgrounds.
