About TMC

Welcome to Thriving Minds Group Practice. Our professional goal is to guide our community of Latinx with our mental, spiritual, emotional and physical health. We know that the choice to be vulnerable with a stranger is not an easy one, and as a member of the Latinx community, this carries its own challenges. Our aim is to provide a safe and supportive space in which we can openly discuss your stressors, emotions, thoughts, and goals. We work to understand and create goals based on the sense of your unique situation. Our expertise is in working with survivors of trauma to learn the skills to heal and move forward following experiences of childhood abuse, sexual assault and exploitation, domestic violence, immigration, and community violence. We have worked extensively to support individuals and families experiencing life transitions, loss and separation, anxiety and depression, and relationship challenges. We have spent years working to support culturally diverse community schools, and nonprofits as therapists, and advocates.

The words "Thriving Minds" symbolizes a butterfly - a transformative, evolving and ever-growing human thriving to become more than who they were yesterday - Unknown
