Many families and children who migrate to St. Louis have suffered trauma that impedes their adjustment to the St. Louis community. We are one of the few providers in the St. Louis area who offer Spanish-language mental health to children, adults, and families as they work through these past experiences.
Our clinical staff is trained in a wide variety of evidence-based practices to assure they are able to have the most appropriate intervention for each individual. Using evidence-based models including Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT), and Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing Therapy (EMDR), and art therapy, the staff at Southside Center assist individuals as they confront their past and move forward with their lives.
All of our therapists have an understanding of the specific needs of individuals who have migrated to the U.S. or whose close family members have done so. While every client is unique, their years of experience with individuals of the Latinx and Hispanic diaspora give them significant understanding of the challenges that Spanish-speaking clients may face. The majority of our staff are immigrants themselves, and this cultural awareness contributes to an office that is particularly responsive to the needs of Spanish-speaking clients.
Since all of our staff are bilingual, there is no need for an interpreter. In order to make an appointment, call Southside Center at the number below.
