I am a licensed Mental Health Counselor and getting my Doctoral degree in Psychoanalysis. I strongly believe that we, mental health professionals, should improve our skills when serving diverse ethnic, racial, and cultural populations. If you embrace cultural competency in the mental health field and appreciate cultural diversity while providing mental health services, you need to join us! This group aims to explore and develop effective and creative solutions for psychosocial and mental health issues by using multicultural lenses. Through local meetups, workshops and trainings we will develop cultural sensitivity and raise cultural awareness to help people understand the norms, values, traditions, experiences, expectations and life styles of minority groups.
This professional networking group aims to foster collaborative networking opportunity and provide psychoeducation for mental health professionals of all ages and levels (LMHC, LICSW, LMFT, ABA, Clinical Psychologists, Psychiatrists, Psychotherapists, Holistic Healers who promote Mental Health Wellness, School Psychologists, Behavioral Therapists, RN and Psychoanalysts). While sharing our personal and clinical experiences, we will help as well as support each other to gain awareness and knowledge of various cultural beliefs and practices that will make us culturally competent mental health professionals.
