Spanish Speaking Therapist in Grand Rapids
If English is not your preferred language, I can offer Spanish-speaking clients counseling in their native tongue. If Spanish is your first language and you’re unable to speak to your therapist in Spanish, there could be lingering issues that might be left unsaid. When counselors and clients are unable to communicate effectively, both parties often leave the counseling session feeling unsatisfied.
Our goal at HCH is to ensure you have all the tools you need to be open and forthcoming about your issues, no matter what language you speak.
Best Counseling in Spanish
Only 5.5% of therapists nationwide can provide psychotherapy in Spanish. This translates into less options when approaching some practices. When clients experience language barriers or a cultural disconnect with their counselor, it increases the likelihood that they will not pursue therapy. We want you to speak the words in your heart. HCH Therapy and Counseling is committed to providing counseling in Spanish to the communities that speak it.
Several studies over the past decade clearly demonstrate that Spanish-speaking clients seeking mental health services in the United States will encounter some difficulty finding the support they need in their native tongue. However, the real problem falls on the lack of Spanish speakers in the field of Psychology. In a nationwide APA survey of Health Service Providers, only 5.5 percent of psychologists said they can provide services in Spanish.
This is staggering, especially considering that people of Hispanic origin account for almost 18 percent of the total U.S. population. Hispanics are the largest ethnic group in the United States. By 2060, Census projections estimate the Hispanic community will reach 119 million people, representing more than 28 percent of the American population. Grand Rapids mirrors this trend in Latino American communities, almost verbatim.
