De-mystifying Therapy for Asian Americans


The goal of our outreach efforts is de-stigmatize and de-mystify therapy in Asian communities. The more information people have about what therapy is and how therapy works, the more accessible it becomes.

We want to help Asian Americans  utilize counseling and therapy in much higher numbers, not only in severe mental health cases and not only as the last resort.

We host events in our communities and welcome opportunities to speak at your school and organizations.
