Asian Americans and members of minority groups (i.e., BIPOC = Black, Indigenous, and People of Color) are often underrepresented in mental health care. For some, the whole idea of therapy (divulging personal problems to a stranger) runs countercultural to one’s upbringing. For others, one major barrier is being able to find a therapist with whom they feel comfortable. Many minority individuals say that finding a therapist who they believe can understand the cultural nuances of their racial or ethnic identity makes a huge difference in whether they choose to engage in therapy. As in any other therapy relationship, deep work can begin when you feel understood and cared for in a judgement-free environment.
