In this discussion, we highlight the importance of weaving in traditional healing approaches such as faith, spirituality and family acceptance into therapy when serving our Latinx Communities. We also reflect on the challenges of setting boundaries in a Latinx familia during our own journeys of self-discovery. The Nopal Kweenz get real and talk about managing life when things are overwhelming and how we allow ourselves to take breaks to recharge. As always, we sign off with affirmations for our gente out there sharing in the struggles of balancing self-identity with family traditions and expectations.
