Therapy for Black Folx
Promoting Wellness in
our Black Community
The search for a culturally-affirming therapist, let alone a therapist of color or a Black therapist can be daunting and challenging!
You may be looking for someone with an innate understanding of what it’s like to be Black in America. You might have worked with White therapists before, but felt the need to overexplain or re-educate them on the nuances tied to race -- or worse, had your experiences minimized or dismissed! Or perhaps you are exploring the possibility of therapy for the first time, and are looking for a space where you can be your full yourself, with no guard, code-switch, or need to educate and explain.
If you are looking for a Black or Therapist of Color who is passionate about providing culturally-affirming, anti-oppressive, decolonized therapy you have come to the right place!
Our therapists can empower you to reclaim and embrace your power, your voice, and your inner truths so that you can create life that feels more meaningful and congruent with your values---a life where you are thriving, not merely surviving.

Anti-oppressive/decolonized therapy means that we will: never pathologize or shame appropriate responses to oppression and trauma. Therapy should always be a space to be open and grieve injustice as it happens to ourselves or our community without judgment. Decolonized therapy is a framework of healing from the dehumanizing effects of colonization, white supremacy, and systemic oppression. We de-center mental health away from the dominant, white narrative, and instead, we center rich familial, cultural, and ancestral wisdom, knowledge, and strengths from our Black communities.
Our anti-oppressive, culturally-informed approach to understand dynamics of power, privilege, and oppression that have shape our clients' identities and lived experiences. For Black folx, an important part of our work is healing the wounds from racial stress and racial trauma (microaggressions, racism, violence, stereotypes, poverty, and discrimination). Anti-Oppressive, Decolonized therapy is the therapy you have been looking for - the therapy each of us deserves.
