Do you feel like it is hard to connect to others? Or do you feel like you don't belong?
Are you feeling lost?
Are you lacking energy or passion for the things you usually love to do?
Are you a parent of a child who is struggling at home or at school?
Dr. Laracuenta-Hernandez is now offering individual therapy sessions and comprehensive psychological evaluations in White Plains. Individual sessions can help you find ways to feel connected and content. You can now access sessions both in the office and via video from the comforts of your own home.
We are a boutique practice that aims to help you to nurture your whole self: mind, body and spirit. In our work together, we help you to identify ways of not only surviving your days, but learning how to thrive. In this practice, we aim to provide a new category or niche; an opportunity to create a truly flexible, culturally inclusive practice – one that is not just embracing of your language, cultural background or any category in which society places us, or the ones we impose upon ourselves.
"Culture makes people understand each other better..... But first they have to understand that their neighbor is, in the end, just like them, with the same problems, the same questions." - Paulo Coelho
This practice aims to provide our clients with the opportunities to heal themselves through taking a holistic approach to mental health care considering your mind, emotions, body and spirit.
