Despite the statics African Americans are less likely than Whites to seek out treatment and more likely to end treatment prematurely. This can occur for a variety of reasons; educational, economical, social, and stigma.
For these very reason and for other reasons not mentioned, I decided to create a safe space online where mental health topics can be presented in a way that feels more accessible and relevant. We seek to help women discover their immense internal power, while eliminating all that is holding us back. Our goal is to guide, inspire, and motivate women from all backgrounds to live their ideal lives.

For Colored Girls
For Colored Girls is a 6-8 week closed behavioral and wellness session series, that will explore different topics ranging from self esteem to empowerment within young women of color .
Therapy for The Colored Girl is an online space dedicated to encouraging the mental wellness of Brown and Black women and girls. One of the remaining taboos in many communities of color is the stigma around mental illness. For many in the African American community, our story is one of perseverance and resilience. After all, we survived slavery; surely, we can survive “sadness” or “anxiety.” Well, according to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Office of Minority Health, adult Black/African Americans are 20 percent more likely to report serious psychological distress than adult Whites.
