Austin Bilingual Therapy

Why should I see a bilingual therapist?

Studies have shown that receiving counseling services in your first language is more effective that receiving counseling in your nonnative language. For many people it is easier to tell a complete narrative and be fully engaged with their emotions in their first language. Seeing a bilingual bicultural therapist minimizes the chance of missing nuances and emotional implications.
