About us

A healing space for mujeres luchadoras!

The Latina Healing Institute was created for, and is run by, Latina women.

Our goal is to empower and support fellow Latinas by providing a place of healing and connection.

Our cultural heritage is a vital part of who we are, but very often we have negative experiences because of the way others perceive us based on their expectations of what being Latinx means. When we are focused on dealing with internalized prejudice – be it that of others or even our own – we do not have time or energy left to realize our true potential.

At the core of everything we do and hope to achieve through the Latina Healing Institute is the unshakeable certainty that being a latina to become your full potential in all aspects of your life; in the home, in the community and in your professional career. When you stop trying to fit in and let yourself be who you are authentically, that is the moment things start to change – for the better!

This is how the Latina Healing Institute came to be.
