We can't change the difficult situations of the past, but we can strive for deeper understanding & resolve the challenges in your life.
Brittny Garcia, MSW
I believe that therapy can be a beneficial resource for many. Growing up, I did not know much about mental health and therapy until I was in my own crisis. The mental health stigma that is a great part of my Latinx community, greatly impacted my own experience. I understand stigma is something that many different communities may face, and I hope to help break down that stigma so people can openly receive the help they need. After reaching out for help myself, I was able to start living up to a better version of myself. Now I hope to provide similar hope to others.
Therefore, I also believe therapy is not just a tool to be used once a person may feel at their lowest, but in instances of uncertainty surrounding different challenges and life transitions. Every person has their own unique experiences, impacted by the variety of systems in place whether it may be cultural, familial, religious or more. As people, we aim to navigate our identities in the environments and society we find ourselves in. These experiences have shaped and taught us how to cope with different situations, resulting in different behavioral and thought patterns that may cause us to feel rather distressed. As a therapist, my goal is to work hand in hand with individuals to create an empathic space to share your experiences, where we can work through those patterns and discover which may no longer serve you. Together we can work on self awareness, exploring the past, empowerment, and creating meaningful changes within your life and relationships to start the healing process.
