I Support the Latinx Community Through Culturally-Informed Mental Health Care
Learn About Me and How I Can Help
Anairis Boror, LSW
Hello, my name is Anairis Boror, and I’m a Bilingual Psychotherapist at Latinx Talk Therapy. I celebrate your identities and welcome you to be your whole self in therapy. I hope to guide you on your healing journey through storytelling, somatic practices, and liberation.
My style is deeply rooted in a social justice practice to ensure that you have a secure, nonjudgmental, and accepting therapeutic space. As an engaged listener, my therapeutic approach is collaborative and flexible because I believe you are the expert in your own healing process. Together, we can explore ways to bring joy, growth, and kindness back into your life.
You Don’t Have to Face Your Struggles Alone, I Am Here to Help
Pero qué va a decir la gente. It is difficult to ask for support, especially in the Latinx community. We face daily emotional, cognitive, and physical challenges. We may be afraid to share our most intimate thoughts or feelings. My goal is to accompany you on the path you choose for yourself. Embracing your strengths may feel overwhelming, but together we can develop sustainable behaviors, awareness, and confidence.
Get to Know A Little Bit More About Me
I was born in Los Angeles, CA, and raised on the west side of Chicago, IL. My pronouns are she/they. I deeply value my Guatemalan roots, as they have greatly influenced my upbringing. My family, who immigrated to the U.S. in the 90s, continue to practice various traditions, including storytelling, as a way to heal from past challenges.
I began my career at Denison University, where I obtained a degree in Women’s and Gender Studies as a first-generation college student. Later, I earned my master’s degree from Smith College School for Social Work, specializing in providing mental health services to individuals with marginalized identities.
I aim to nurture a healing space for Q+ Black, Indigenous, and people of color through love, care, and respect. My therapeutic approaches include, but are not limited to, psychodynamic modalities, narrative therapy, cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), mindfulness, intersectional, and liberation frameworks. I have worked with adolescents and adults who have experienced depression, anxiety, grief, loss, childhood trauma, and racial trauma. I am here to guide you in navigating these challenges, fostering healing, liberation, and cultivating self-love.
