Multiculturalism & Intersectionality
At Mindful Life Counseling, we acknowledge the importance of integrating multiculturalism and intersectionality into the therapy space. We recognize that human beings are a product of different cultures and groups and cannot be seen as a single identity. It is important that our therapists understand the complexity of these multiple dimensions when it comes to understanding clients’ self-identity, worldview, and struggles. These multiple identities impact the way people think, feel, and act and have an impact on how people navigate through the world. These intersections include culture, language, gender, race, ethnicity, ability, status, sexual orientation, age, gender identity, socioeconomic status, religion, spirituality, immigration status, education among other variables.

At Mindful Life Counseling, we take special care to highlight the needs and strengths of marginalized groups. We believe that therapy should be a safe space for healing and we strive for each client to feel seen, heard, and understood in the therapy process and to reach their goals.
