Or at least will listen without making you “prove” that your experience is real?
We know it can be hard to find a therapist who is understanding of what it’s like to be person of color in the world today. Not all of our struggles in life can be categorized under a medical diagnosis (unfortunately, “my boss keeps touching my hair without asking” is not in the DSM-5). Many of us deal with additional stressors walking through the world each day. We may also struggle with issues related to racial or cultural identity.
We provide a safe place for you to openly discuss your concerns without fear of judgment, need for code switching, or worry that you have to educate us on the topic. We will give you coping skills to help better manage the stress that you face on a daily basis and if you have associated issues (e.g. depression, anxiety) we will address those as well.
