Welcome to Therapy for Black Women

Mental Health for Black Women

We know things are sometimes for us, a little different, right?  Culturally and historically we've seen mental health issues play out and we've been taught to ignore them, dismiss them, deny them or relabel them.  We've sometimes been taught to be embarrassed or feel we don't have time to address them.  Well we're here to set the record straight, prioritize our health and reclaim our time!  We deserve mental health care that is compassionate, considerate, culturally relevant and clinically effective.
