Being a person of color in Lewiston Maine has come with many challenges. The lack of racial diversity in schools and health providers for people who look like me made help-seeking feel unattainable. It is a joy to welcome you to a space created to honor all that makes you unique.
As a Puerto Rican woman who moved to Maine from Brooklyn (NY), I understand how strange and lonely it can be to be the only person of color in the room. I also know how heartening and empowering it is to find familiarity and community. Together, we can find home and belonging – even here in Maine.
I recall the first time I engaged in therapy and was left feeling unseen and unheard. The disconnect between myself and my provider was rooted in lack of knowledge and understanding of cultural and racial differences. I am proud to invite you to a therapeutic space designed to honor and support the BIPOC experience.
