Ana Vidina Hernández (MA Latin American Studies, MSSW) is the program and research coordinator of Girasol at the Texas Institute for Child and Family Wellbeing at the University of Texas at Austin.

Her advocacy, social work practice, and research are centered around work with immigrants in detention and the immigrant community in Texas.

We are not a service provider.  We have created a directory of culturally grounded Latinx therapists who believe in the human rights of migrant peoples. This directory is meant to be a resource for all those who are Latinx and anyone engaged in advancing the human rights and dignity of Latinx migrant communities across the United States.   This directory is a list of mental health professionals and not a recommendation or guarantee of quality service by LTAN.  We highly encourage everyone to research and consult directly with providers before beginning services with them to ensure it is a good fit.
