Immigration & Its Emotional Burdens
Counseling for Immigrants
Most immigrants come from Latin America and Asia, however America is a big mix of people from around the globe. The United States is now a much more ethnically diverse place than before and it will increasingly become more diverse over time. Immigrants can find many opportunities here in the states but there are also many hardships they will face. There are legal situations, prejudice from others, difficulty finding work.
