My Approach to Helping

Some of the unique issues faced by clients in my specialization can be stigma. It is particularly stigmatized to see a therapist among people of color, although I believe this is improving. Add on multiple identities, maybe a person of color, who is a part of the LGBTQIA population. They may find it difficult to find a therapist who can understand these intersectional identities. Or take a black person in their postpartum period, struggling and afraid to seek care in systems that have previously harmed them. The issues faced are so interwoven and get further complicated the more marginalized identities that one identifies with.
I seek to bridge these gaps, and be that provider that is culturally competent and able to care for a person with intersectional identities where therapy may be a very new idea. I think breaking negative generational patterns is essential work and I take it very seriously. I hope to be a bridge over any barriers.
