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.  

DIRECTORY

A RESOURCE FOR THOSE ON THE FRONT LINES

This Directory is an offering to the migrant rights movement.  It is a directory of culturally grounded, Latinx mental health practitioners who believe in the human right and dignity of Latinx communities and Latinx migrant communities across the United States. 

These coordinated, large-scale assaults can devastate the spirits, livelihoods, and wellbeing of these communities, leaving deep emotional, physical, spiritual, and political wounds. We form this network as an affirmation of our humanity, our worthiness, our power, and all our people’s beauty. We declare that our future is bright and self-determined.

MAKING THERAPY ACCESSIBLE FOR THOSE IN NEED

The therapists listed in this directory are committed to providing therapy or other mental health services for those in need on a sliding scale for a maximum of 12 sessions at this scale. This sliding scale starts at $25 and goes up to $75. The pricing will vary based on the agreement between the therapist and the client.

PEER SUPPORT TEAM

WHO WE ARE?

The LTAN Peer Support Team is a group of community members with mental health training who assist people on the frontlines in need of guidance, conversation, emotional support, and navigating community grief.

Peer support is given by individuals who use their lived experiences to assist people in their journeys using the following principles:

  • Peer supporters provide emotional support and mentoring to individuals inside the migrant community and within its movement leadership

  • Relationships are based on the principles of mutual respect, empathy, shared and/or similar experiences, egalitarianism, reciprocity and the belief in social justice

  • Peer supporters are open. They share their lived experiences for the benefit of the other person and peer supporters are willing to listen without judgement

  • Peer support focuses on understanding one others’ strengths and challenges and being willing to meet each other where they are
