Our Story

TOC therapy is a group practice of Latina Counselors, all children of immigrants. Our identities inform the work we do. We help you better understand your behaviors, choices, and patterns from a culturally congruent point of view that facilitates self-knowledge, self-understanding and self-compassion.

While each of our approaches is unique in it's own way, all of our services are rooted practicing liberation psychology. We believe in community and helping our patients understand and heal themselves but we also believe we are part of a larger system that requires change. While helping our clients heal, we take into account the power of oppressive systems on your mental health and find a way to talk and process issues that are much larger that us.  

We are a psychodynamic and psychoanalytical practice.

The psychodynamic part of our work allows us to draw from different modalities like CBT, Somatic Therapy, solution-focused, Gottman Therapy, EFT, and others in order to find and use the interventions that fit YOU best.

The psychoanalytic part of our work is also essential: it's the part that allows us to make room for and explore how your childhood and past experiences have shaped your relationship with yourself and others-- to really find the origin of your wounds in order to help you find true healing.

If you are ready to start that journey, schedule a free consultation with us down below.
