What are some the unique issues faced by clients in your particular field of specialization, in terms of mental health education, care, and/or treatment?

In my experience BIPOC individuals face intersectional issues. While they are 13% of the population we compose over 50% of health disparities and incarceration rates. In my work with women of color, issues around infertility and lack of proper support around pregnancy loss and IVF process has caused grief, loss and questions about their identity and role as a women. In addition, people of color navigate many injustices which as a collective negatively impact their daily functioning. There has been collective trauma and need for healing and a call for action as a black therapist to provide that emotional space.

What do you think is the biggest barrier today for people seeking care?

I believe there has been an increase in individuals seeking therapy, specifically black indigenous people of color. Currently, a common barrier is not the access of services but finding a therapist of quality that can relate to daily stressors. The therapeutic alliance is the most crucial and salient part of the healing journey. People of color desire to have a therapist with a skill set that can allow them to unmask from the daily injustices and discriminations they face in the work place, community and systems overall. As a black therapist, I desire to acknowledge and address ways in which these systems impact daily functioning.

In what ways have your personal experiences influenced your work with your clients?

I am a black female therapist and founder of Embrace Therapy and Consultation LLC. Embrace Therapy and Consultation LLC is reclaiming emotional and mental wellness for BIPOC folks through unapologetic authentic vibes and healing. As a licensed mental health counselor, I am passionate about serving the BIPOC community. It is often in these communities people have suffered through systemic oppression and having their voice stifled or overlooked in spaces where they make the most impact. I am intentional about creating a space that provides validation , advocacy, safety and empowerment to help individuals and families find their voice and power toward being their most unapologetic self.
