Therapy for and By Black Folks, Indigenous People, and People of Color
In your community mental health therapy hasn't exactly been embraced. As you have considered or even started therapy in the past, you have encountered smiling faces of therapists who do not look like you, have a different background from you, and though perhaps well-intentioned, asks you too many of all the wrong questions. You wonder if they are doing more harm than actually helping you heal.
Therapy with someone who has some of the same values, shared lived experiences and knowledge of what it can be like to exist in the US as a marginalized person from the global majority. Having a therapist that the foundational starting point can be the difference between you simply surviving in this life, and you thriving.
At PlayfulLeigh Psyched, we engage patients as they are. No more trying to fit into someone else’s idea of who you should be. We'll help you explore who are and start to heal generational and historal wounds. You can feel safe to leave the pressure and exhaustion of code-switching to the outside word. With one of our therapists, you'll tap into the community care and ancestral collective knowledge of healing.
