Asian-Americans face unique cultural stressors that are connected to the intersections of identity.
Where is home for folx?
How do folx find alignment with cultural values in places and spaces that are contrary to their sense of home?
I am the Founder and Director of Mango Tree Counseling & Consulting, LLC. Through a mix of post-colonial theory, feminist, and relational-psychoanalytic frameworks, therapy on this content area will focus on the reflection of the here and now, cultural and emotional enactments, developing meaning, re-claiming a cultural self, holding the intersections of various parts of identity, and helping uncover one’s true north(s) in finding a sense of home.
We are Asian/ Asian-American mental health professionals and advocates who seek to improve the mental health of our communities through connection, mobilization, and compassion.
Belonging – We strive to foster a sense of belonging to those who have felt othered, overlooked, invisible, and discarded.
Community – As a collective, we believe in the transformative power of community and seek to create and enhance the strength of the communities we belong to and care for.
Honor – We honor who you are, where you come from, where you are now, and who you hope to be. We honor the courage it takes to seek help and to turn towards your vulnerability in finding alignment.
Access – We believe strongly in creating mental health care that is accessible and address barriers that stand in the way of healing.
Mango Tree Counseling & Consulting is a mental health resource center which centers its efforts on the needs of the Asian-American Community in the Philadelphia Metro area. We provide healing-centered approaches towards mental health wellness and support to our communities in finding a home in their bodies, minds, and communities.
