Therapy For Black, Indigenous, & People Of Color in NYC & Orlando

Therapy for Black, Indigenous, + People of Color

You deserve to be affirmed and respected.

Like many facets of society, the field of mental health and wellness has disproportionately underrepresented those who are Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC).

It’s important to have a therapist that understands and reflects your identity because we can understand and sometimes share some of your lived experiences. Your experiences are unique to you, but having a therapist who shares aspects of your identity can create a deeper trust and understanding that’s incredibly important in creating a trusting relationship.

As much as being a person of color does not encompass all of you, there are cultural aspects that have certainly made an impact on your development and who you are today.

We take into account how your cultural and racial identity affects your life and how that can impact your mental health.

What is therapy for Black, Indigenous, and People of Color? 

Therapy for Black Therapy for Black, Indigenous, and People of Color is an open and accepting space for you to bring your entire cultural, racial and ethnic identity to explore every aspect of your being.

It’s a space where you work with a person of color therapist that can understand the nuances of how race, culture, ethnicity, and your unique identity and how that impacts the way you experience the world.

We emphasize and honor your culture, race, and origin and explore how they form the foundation of who you are today. We also understand that this is not all you are and we work hard to learn about other identities you hold and all other aspects of your life.

While our upbringing, traditions, and dialect may differ from yours, it can be comforting to find commonalities with the person you are sharing so much with in therapy.
