“It was when I realized I needed to stop trying to be somebody else and be myself, I actually started to own, accept and love what I had.”— Tracee Ellis Ross
As an African American woman, I want to be able to help my community. Mental health is underserved in the African American community and for people that actually seek mental health support, there is a lack of people that look like us. I believe that help can be received from anyone; however, the experience can be that much more powerful with someone that can relate in a way other people cannot.
As an African American woman I have always wanted to empower other women of color. I have always wanted to uplift and help women be empowered to have a voice of their own.
I want to create a safe place to talk about whatever comes up for you. You don’t have to seek help just because something is going wrong in your life. Things can be going well, yet you still want to process how you can continue on this journey.
