Therapists Providing Multicultural Therapy in Texas

Multicultural therapy considers the role cultural, ethnic, and racial identities have in the unique experience of the client and the therapeutic process of healing. A multicultural therapist brings a diverse cultural knowledge and curiosity as well as a sensitivity to the history of oppression and the politics of power. The therapist offers an empathetic space to explore cultural identity and how this relates to the client’s process of healing and wellbeing.

SWPA is a group of seasoned and experienced specialized clinicians, each of us at the top of our respective specialities. We have come together with one shared truth - for us, our work is a calling. This isn't just a job. This isn't just a paycheck. We truly love our work and the care we provide our clients. Every decision we make in our practice is based on helping our clients achieve their goals.

We believe our clients are "whole" just as you are. You are not broken, you are not bad, but you may be struggling or hurting, like so many of us are. That struggle may be internal in how you think about yourself or others, or the struggle may be external in your relationships. Regardless of the source of your pain, there is hope that things can be different. The first step in creating change is reaching out and finding a place you feel comfortable in being yourself - your whole self.

When you are in pain or confused, it's not always easy to know where to go or with whom to talk. Therapy offers you a safe and confidential space to tell your story and explore that story's effect on your life right now. With support and feedback, I offer my clients an opportunity to feel more at peace with who they are and to make new decisions about themselves. You may even feel ready to try new behaviors and change the story of your life.

I tend to be informal and interactive and am focused on your goals for therapy. The most important aspect of the therapeutic experience is developing a relationship with someone you can trust. As a result, I try to keep it simple and work with the concerns that you want to address.

I am available to meet in person or via Tele-health video as well as secure electronic registration and payment. Our office follows Covid-19 protocols that allow for social distancing, hand washing and mask wearing.

One of my favorite parts of being a therapist is getting to know new clients — I enjoy discovering what makes you unique and figuring out how I can best serve you in my role as a therapist. While I bring years of experience to our sessions, I'm also deeply invested in understanding your individual experiences and I'm always curious to learn more about you.

Current clients have told me they appreciate my sense of humor and my calm, grounded presence. They've said therapy has helped them see their lives from a different perspective and that their problems seem simpler and more manageable now. They've appreciated that I'm a reliable source of support when times are tough and when dependable friends may be hard to come by.

Expect me to challenge you when you need to be challenged. I'll provide you with honest feedback and will share my opinion when I think it's necessary. And even when I'm gently pointing out that feeling you're avoiding feeling or that not-so-obvious thing you always do in relationships, you'll know it's coming from an empathic, loving place.

If you’re here you may be wondering how therapy can be helpful and if I’m the right therapist for you. Thankfully you’ve taken the first step, which is usually the hardest. My primary goal is to create an environment that is accepting, warm and safe, while also challenging you to find new perspectives and likely make some changes in your life. We will work together with the goal of exploring different aspects of your self in order to uncover why you may be feeling stuck or unsatisfied. 

Do you want closeness but have trouble finding the words to ask for it? Are your habits/behaviors getting in the way of your relationships now? Put simply, I help individuals and couples rediscover intimacy and connection. This can include the relationships we have with others but also ourselves--whether you're seeking to better your relationship with your partner or to food and/or sex (and everything in between) I'm here to provide a warm, non-judgmental space that is both accepting and thought provoking.

I believe in therapy being both active and safe which means I will consistently show up for you to help you meet your goals and live the life you want.

Our emotions are tied to our native language. When starting therapy, it is helpful to have someone who can understand your native language so you can express yourself. I can provide a space where you can switch between both English and Spanish if needed. It is helpful to find someone you are comfortable with that will understand you even when the Spanglish comes out.

My clients usually find their way to me because they want a modern approach to therapy and are cool with playing around with spiritual tools and getting off the therapy couch every now and again. Most of my clients are searching for peace and the resources to weather stress and life adjustments. I know you have a vibrant life to live and together we can make that happen.

Even after 12 years, I still approach each client with the same excitement of seeing my very first. I have deep empathy and investment to learn about your personal story. I conceptualize client problems not by diagnosis but by harnessing the dynamic interplay between environment, attachment and neuroscience. In a nutshell, together we explore the whole you. As an affirming therapist, I'm not here to tell you how to live but rather support you in the discovery of how you want to live best.

I am mystified and excited by the journey of figuring ourselves out and inspired by our resiliency to overcome. Therapy is a process with a beginning, middle and end and I work best with those who are curious about breaking through their self limiting patterns and leading lives with a growth mindset.

If this message gets you excited about the possibilities in your life, let's get to work.

Having worked in Assertive Community Treatment (ACT) and traditional addiction treatment, our Founder and Director, Katherine Casey, saw firsthand the benefits of holistic care beyond traditional talk therapy including somatic and arts therapies, providing family support, collaborating with medical providers, and referrals to community resources. Perhaps most importantly, she recognized the value of using personal insight and experiences to help guide clients on their paths to wellness and self-discovery. Today, these lessons are the principles that guide our practice.

At The Root Therapy NYC clients have the opportunity to develop insight and gain new skills while feeling empowered in the therapeutic process. Clients play a key role in developing goals and evaluating progress in the therapeutic process – they decide what they want to get out of therapy and when they have achieved their goals.

The Root Therapy NYC is staffed with therapists with a range of clinical training and expertise to help guide clients through a change process using approaches that research has proven effective. Each therapist is an individual who reflects the group’s guiding principles through ongoing clinical supervision, continuing education, community engagement, and self-care.

In my personal and professional experience, people walk around wearing invisible masks- we all put on a "brave face" so as not to be judged in our daily interactions. When asked, "How are your doing today?" The expected response is, "I'm fine." or "I'm doing great, how about you?" Question: Are we really fine everyday? Let's talk about what's underneath the "I'm fine." Working with me, we get to take off our masks and be our true selves. I welcome the opportunity to work with you to explore who you are, who you are becoming, and what your personal, professional, and relationship goals are. I also look forward to growing with you as we both exercise our mental muscle towards a better version of ourselves.

Life is a gift, a song waiting to be sung. But life can be hard. Whether it’s a lifetime of bad breaks, heart-rending losses, crippling anxiety or you’re looking to occupy your place in the sun, we can encourage new skills and a mindset to thrive. Building a rich and meaningful life means taking a risk. As your ally, I take that risk with you. I help make your growth simple--not effortless, but simple and achievable..

I base my work on a deep belief in the power of the therapeutic relationship. I also deeply believe in the effectiveness of research-supported techniques like CBT, DBT, ACT. But it’s the therapeutic relationship that brings those techniques to life. It creates a dynamic synergy that’s larger than the sum of its parts -- like H20 is more than Hydrogen and Oxygen. I offer psychoeducation, role-plays and often ask my clients to journal between sessions with words, music, art or poetry to help process their emotions. I’ll walk with you as we look back on the past and we’ll look forward to envision what could be. We’ll detect the pivot points, anticipate the roadblocks and try out your work-arounds.

My special passion is integrating my clients’ religious/spiritual beliefs into traditional therapy. I identify as Christian but I’m religiously multi-lingual. I was raised in the church but I’ve been around the block. Of course, it’s not necessary but if you’d like, we can integrate your spiritual life into psychological traditions.
