Ingrid Solano, PhD
“There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you.” Maya Angelou.Sensitivity to racism and oppression, understanding the impact of discrimination, awareness of socialization processes, collaboration, and empathy informed by minority identity and historical and social-political realities engender understanding and effectiveness when working with diverse and minority clients. Each of these cultural competencies promote a safe place for you to explore yourself, and what influences your world… I consider adaptations for existing evidence-based treatments, as well as clinical wisdom of expert mental health providers, to address diversity concerns, affirm, and improve your experience and your progress.
We are all individuals, and we can all learn from each other.
