There are times in life when we all need extra care and support. La Cocina, or The Kitchen in English, is named after the warmest, most inviting, and most nourishing place in our home. Our programs offer a safe space for adults, children and families to come together for key Spanish-language therapy services, including recovery from trauma, forensic assessments for immigrants in detention, individual and/or family therapy, parents coaching, structured therapy groups for parents and adolescents, directive and non-directive play therapy to promote safe and healthy childhood development, and Charlas that sustain community wellbeing.
Meet the people behind La Cocina.
Children and parents are in immediate need of mental health support and forensic assessments to aid their efforts for reunification and asylum. Be a part of the change needed to provide access to critical services.
Bilingual (Spanish-English) licensed social workers, marriage and family therapists, counselors, and psychologists may volunteer their time serving La Cocina’s diverse immigrant community.
