“Many people’s needs are overlooked because they are often perceived as insignificant. No matter how big nor small the concern, I value helping navigate areas that are significant to the client.” Dr. Londí
Meet Dr. Londí
With a Doctorate Degree in International Psychology, Master’s Degree in Social Work, and a Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology, Dr. Londí has studied psychology across 18 different countries throughout North and South America, Europe, Africa and Asia to be able to provide culturally contextual interventions for the populations she serves. While her educational background affords her the skills and techniques to provide culturally competent therapy, her expertise in this area stems from her firsthand experience living abroad and providing therapy to culturally diverse populations. Having moved to Spain without yet knowing Spanish, she was forced to navigate many of the challenges related to being a foreigner in an unknown land. The same became true when she relocated to the United Kingdom and then again to Japan.
As surface level as they may seem, Dr. Londí’s expatriate challenges varied from loss of identity, feeling isolated, difficulty building meaningful relationships, struggling to establish a sense of belonging, navigating guilt for leaving previous friendships and relationships behind, acculturating, and handling intersectional discrimination. This is why Dr. Londí has a passion for working with expats and travel lovers who face similar barriers, as she recognizes that despite the allure of a multicultural lifestyle, the excitement of travel, and the fulfillment of living in a different culture, this nontraditional lifestyle comes with its own set of challenges. Dr. Londí holds nearly 10 years of experience working with international families in America, Spain, England, Japan, Peru and the Philippines, providing culturally competent therapy to individuals, couples, families and groups living and traveling abroad.
