More about California Psychotherapists

Another interesting fact about California is that it's traditionally been one of the most diverse states in the nation. Immigrants from all over the world, such as Mexico, Central and South America, and Asia, have formed strong communities in California, with their own cultural traditions. California has also been home to other groups with strong cultural identities, such as feminist, African-American, and gay and lesbian communities.

All of these cultures contribute to and benefit from the unique multicultural focus of California psychotherapists. In a state as diverse as California, you will be able to find more therapists that have an understanding of various cultures and values; often times, because these therapists themselves come from these cultures. This is very important for patients. They need to receive care from professionals who are not only experts in their field, but who are also informed, unbiased, and sensitive to the different cultural realities of their clients.
