Why BLCKTherapy?

I founded BLCK Therapy to increase behavioral health awareness specifically in the African American community. I find a deep-rooted passion for helping to change the stigma behind engaging in talk therapy with a therapist, counselor, or life coach. I encourage dialog for discussing feelings, emotions as well as fears or traumatic experiences. 


Culturally, we have endured a lot of trauma both learned and generational. If not managed properly, as we age, the intensity and pain of trauma doesn't go away, it evolves as we do. This trauma can later show up as either aggressive behavior, isolation, anxiety, depression and in other cases, suicide. 

I actively choose a path of behavioral health advocacy to help others live their best lives and work through past traumas without feeling like their "why" is judged or compromised.
