MISSION & VISION
Our mission is to educate, empower, and support vulnerable individuals in our communities. We improve people's lives through mental health therapeutic plans and personal care assistance programs. Our hearts are open to everyone. We support clients as young as five, senior adults, and everyone in between.
Love, compassion, and strict adherence to ethical practices are part of our commitment.
Love and compassion guide our efforts. Strong ethical values define our actions. Our trained mental health professionals facilitate collaborative therapy to support our clients on their wellness journeys.
At Loving Hearts of LA, we see therapists as guided by both the mind and the heart. We imagine a mental health community where all people receive the dignity and respect they deserve. We embody strong ethical values as a fundamental part of our identity.
We envision a culture of therapy in which love and understanding are the founding principles. Using encouragement, we empower people to recognize and resolve deficiencies preventing happy and healthy lives.
Disabilities and mental health conditions can make it difficult to perform the daily activities of life. Our personal care assistants are trained and able to support these needs.
