Entering motherhood is hard in itself but learning a new cultural while upholding your home roots brings a whole different level of difficulty. Dulce Orozco speaks to all Latinx mothers today as she shares her story and helpful resources for mental health and healing women of color.
“I work with women of color, from immigrant families, not only Latinx women, but women of color in general, helping them to put themselves first, which I think is hard for women in general, but it has a different flavor when it comes to Latinx women.”
Latinx people make up more than 18% of the American population. Today we are unpacking how Latinx cultural values differ and coincide with the American culture. Dulce Orozco is an immigrant therapist, helping heal women of color from immigrant families to put themselves first. Listeners will hear the challenge Latinx mothers experience, along with a variety of other unique struggles.
Our guest in this episode brings a perspective that is not common to come by. Dulce shares what it was like coming into the United States for the first time and the set of cultural differences she observed. We will talk through the important of maintaining a foundation of your own culture. While taking a moment to learn how to better understand those who differ from you.
