Sunrise-Amanecer Inc. Is a non-profit that was founded May 2019. We were founded by Amanda Huber Lopera, who is also our Executive Director and a Psychotherapist on the team. Amanda noticed a need in the community for responsive care in Spanish for the Latinx community. Amanda continually noticed a gap in quality mental health care for the latinx community and decided to start the work in creating a space to house community programing and mental health care in the triad area. It is important for us at Sunrise-Amanecer Inc. to be an affirming place for all. We are an LGBTQIA+ affirming agency and safe place for all.
Sunrise-Amanecer is dedicated to serving and connecting the Latine, LGBTQIA+, and diverse populations to culturally humble and responsive mental health services.
We strive to serve our clients in and out of office. Fight for social justice for any vulnerable population including the LGBTQIA+, Latinx, and the whole BIPOC community. We recognize the importance of integrity, and vow to decolonize our minds. We acknowledge that we are not the experts on your life and you hold the keys and we will help you find the lock. We will strive to increase our knowledge and skills to enhance our competence. We are here to guide and support you through life’s twists and turns leading you to live full and prosperous lives. Therse are our values and what we represent as Sunrise-Amanecer.
“Helping People Live Full and Prosperous Lives.”
