"Paying attention to your mental health allows you to have a richer and fuller life" -Dr. Joy
Tell us about the work you do and how you got started.
I am a licensed Psychologist and the creator of Therapy for Black Girls. It is important to me that Black women and girls make their mental health a priority, and to do this I wanted to create a platform that would make mental health issues more relevant and accessible. Through the use of blog posts, community conversations, and the podcast, I share information with Black women to help them become the best possible versions of themselves. I have been licensed since 2008 and working with Black women and girls has always been the focus of my practice.
Why does minority mental health matter to you?
It matters to me because I don't think that anyone should feel embarrassed or ashamed to ask for help. Paying attention to your mental health allows you to have a richer and fuller life, and everyone deserves this!
