We don’t just provide therapy in ASL we also understand deafness as a culture and community.
That’s why it’s crucial to find a community and support system that can help you navigate the world and provide you with a safe space to share your struggles.
If you are deaf or hard of hearing, you’ve come to the right place.
Unlike most therapy practices out there, we have unique experience working with deaf clients.
Our ASL therapist studied at Gallaudet University, a well-renowned university for the deaf and hard of hearing.
That means our team has extensive knowledge and training working with the Deaf and hearing loss community and understanding deaf culture and identity.
We will help you with all of your needs, remain sensitive to your unique experiences, and tailor your therapy to fit your personal goals and aspirations.
Our therapists will ensure a safe, nonjudgmental, confidential, and secure place for you to share your thoughts and feelings.
We are skilled in providing culturally sensitive and linguistically affirmative services to Deaf individuals and their families through the use of American Sign Language (ASL), signed English, and spoken English.
It’s important that we make sure to match your communication needs and preferences, and uphold the utmost professionalism.
We will take into consideration how Deaf clients’ lives are shaped by their identity and experiences as a member of their cultural and linguistic background, and we will take your unique experiences into account to shape your future in a positive and hopeful way.
By working with an ASL therapist you will have an easier time communicating at a pace that best fits your mental and emotional needs, and you’ll be able to work out the most intimate parts of your feelings and emotions.
Our therapist is mindful of the counseling relationship and, as a hearing therapist, wants to ensure clients’ comfort regarding identity differences.
Our goal at My LA Therapy is to create a therapy setting that fits your cultural and communication needs as we work together to determine the best possible road to your emotional and psychological well-being.
