CHALLENGES RELATED TO CULTURAL DIVERSITY
“One of the greatest regrets in life is being what others would want you to be, rather than being yourself.”
― Shannon L. Alder
The desire to be accepted for who we are, is not foreign to any of us. We want to feel belong and included, especially with those who we feel a part of. Our cultural and sub-cultural affiliations define who we are. They also define the freedoms and limitations we might put on ourselves, and influence our ability to achieve emotional well-being. If you feel disconnected from your culture of origin, find it challenging to negotiate cultural clashes — within yourself or with others, or find it difficult to integrate various cultural identities that are important to you — I want to invite you on a journey of self-discovery. I will guide you in the process of exploration and evaluation of all facets of your cultural identity, while helping you to evolve into the unique person you are and cultivating a sense of belonging.
