Bi-Cultural Identity Stress

Being immersed in a new culture provides you with the opportunity to learn a second language, get to know different customs, traditions, cuisines, behaviors, and so on. However, for many families, bicultural living is an ongoing struggle to balance what is expected and valued in the new environment and their own upbringing, values, and expectations. It’s not uncommon to see parenting become more challenging when raising children in western culture. Many people feel caught between two cultures, constantly feeling unfitting or unable to blend and assimilate into the mainstream culture. This may cause differences in values and beliefs, leading to strained family relationships. Especially kids who grow up in a new culture often feel responsible for translating the mainstream culture to their parents. Adolescents who grow up in a cultural home environment different from a dominant cultural environment may struggle with an identity crisis. This gap between generations may strain family relationships causing misunderstanding, poor communication, and other family dynamics difficulties. This eventually causes mental health problems and behaviour issues.

Support from a compassionate psychotherapist can help you work through feelings of inadequacy, guilt, anger, and shame. This can help you find a balance between your different identities and adjust to the demands of your bicultural life. I am here to walk with you, help you explore your deeper cultural dimensions, and find the true essence of life.
