“I am grateful for Brandie creating Therapy for LatinX as a resource for the LatinX community, where therapy is often stigmatized or left for only those with severe mental health issues. The website is helping to fulfill a need in for both therapists and people seeking therapy. Therapy’s success is tied to the relationship that can be built between the therapist and client, so finding someone you think can relate to your story is important. The clients who have found me on this site describe struggling to find that and were relieved when they found the website.”
