Open Paths Counseling Center

  • 2 people are interested

Open Paths Counseling Center provides low or no-fee culturally-sensitive, trauma-informed therapy to under-served communities in Los Angeles. Our healers (therapists), many of whom come from the communities we serve, have been working incredibly hard to support the emotional wellbeing of our clientele. Most of our clinicians and clients have been directly impacted by the financial and/or health hardships caused by COVID, racial trauma from the ongoing killings of unarmed Black and Brown people, and the oppression of poverty.

Open Paths is seeking a person who deeply understands the roots of oppression as it relates to race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, and the intersections of these, and can provide healing guided meditations that centers from this place. Our goal is to offer guided mediations, and other types of healing practices (we are open to recommendations!) that can be provided at different days and times every week to help restore and reinvigorate our clinicians who are doing such tremendous work supporting those who need it most. If this sounds like you, please reach out.

Please note, due to liability, Open Paths will require a certification and/or other proof of expertise in the healing modality being offered by you. All offerings must be accessible to people of all body types and abilities. Services also offered in Spanish are highly encouraged. Thank you for considering!
