Multicultural Therapy

Multicultural therapy takes into consideration cultural, national, ethnic and spiritual diversity in addition to sexual preferences, gender identity, sexual orientation, social class, etc. The main goal of multicultural therapy is to acknowledge, highlight and work with those who face the challenges of being multicultural in one or more of the following ways:

  • Multiethnic and bicultural individuals

  • Expats or immigrants who are adapting to a new host country

  • Intercultural couples and other relationship arrangements in which each individual comes from different cultures or communities

  • "Third Culture Kids" who are now adults but have been exposed to a variety of different cultures while growing up

  • Those experiencing "reverse culture shock" after repatriating from a foreign culture back to their home culture (e.g. international students, employees and families of multinational corporations)

  • LGBTQIA+ individuals

  • Individuals who are in or would like to explore consensual non-monogamy, polyamory, swinging, kink or BDSM relationships

  • Those who are undergoing "sexual acculturation"
