A First Generation American is someone who is born in the USA and whose parents are foreign-born immigrants from another country.

This group is for you if …

  • You feel like you are stuck between two worlds and neither one accepts you
  • Feeling like you don’t FULLY belong in the “American society” but also feeling too “white-washed” within your culture

By connecting with other people who are experiencing similar issues, you will feel understood, supported, and less isolated by your experience. We will create a friendly and supportive environment to process the unique challenges of first-generation Americans.

In this group you will  …

  • Find new ways to navigate the balance of your two worlds while maintaining your own identity
  • Express fears, concerns, & insecurities
  • Share personal experiences
  • Engage in self – compassion
  • Practice self-care
  • Learn new coping skills unique to your situation
