We partner with educational instituations and community partners to provide knowledge of the need for latinx therapists and how to get there.

DATABASE OF FULLY FUNDED PROGRAMS

At Latinx Therapist Project, we recognize that getting education funded is a big obstable in increasing latinx therapists that is why our goal is to give information on which programs offer fully funded masters or phd degrees. 

We also partner with universities to create oppurtunities for latinx students looking to get into therapy programs. 

CREATING KNOWLEGE OF THERAPY SPECIALITES AMONG  LATINX PROFESSIONALS

Navigating which therapy specialty to go into can be a challenging and career defining moment- whether it be marriage & family therapy, clinical counseling, social work, or psychologist. Through our informational webinars and mentoring programs we can help latinx professionals make that decision.
