Immigration Counseling For Adults
Are you an immigrant with your heart in two places?
Are you an immigrant balancing the stressors of migrating to a new country, while also maintaining close involvement with family interactions back home?
Are you an immigrant suffering from an emotionally tough separation from country and family upon migrating to the U.S?
Immigrants often leave their home country in pursuit of better opportunities and to fulfilling their dreams. Upon arriving to the new land, immigrants undergo complex behavioral and emotional changes as a result of interacting and adapting to the beliefs, values, and customs of a new culture. This process is called acculturation. The professionals at the Lartey Wellness Group, understand that the immigration process— separation from your home country, family members, customs and traditions, changes in social class and/or socioeconomic status, exposure to a new physical environment, and the need to navigate unfamiliar cultural contexts—can be very stressful.
Balancing homesickness, supporting family back home, and the complex challenge of navigating two cultures and figuring out how best to live within each one— are some of the stressors that the experts at the Lartey Wellness Group can assist you with.
