East Bay Area Therapy is owned by bilingual Marriage and Family Therapist (MFT), Grace Pacheco, M.A., MFT, who provides culturally conscious counseling services, predominately to immigrant populations and U.S. born persons of color. She welcomes persons of all backgrounds, of all levels of privilege, and of all levels of powerlessness into her doors, because everyone has valid experiences of suffering. Grace provides individual therapy, couples therapy, psychological evaluations for immigration cases, offers an online course, and audio meditation albums.
She has a unique understanding that persons from cultures of color often under-utilize psychological services for a variety of valid reasons, are deeply affected by societal oppression, generational trauma, religious influences, all of which all intersect with presenting psychological complaints. It is the goal and intention of East Bay Area Therapy to provide culturally appropriate therapy and psychological evaluations, coupled with evidence-based therapeutic intervention, and lead the way for mental health providers-- who have historically failed to provide culturally competent mental health services.
