Therapy for Working Professionals
Help for The Developing and Developed Change Maker
Black women represent the most educated segment of the population yet women of color occupy less than 11% of management, senior management and executive roles. Women of color also represent the fastest growing segment of small business owners in the U.S. We are soaring to new heights and occupying new spaces as entrepreneurs and professionals, but we often have trouble claiming our seat at the table.

How We Help
We honor you as the expert on yourself while providing a safe space for you to process and to explore and define your values. As a team, you and your therapist will create a plan that focuses on targeting the thoughts and behaviors that get in the way of your actions aligning with your values. It could be social anxiety or low self-esteem that prevents you from networking and creating the new and vital relationships that are needed as you progress on your career/entrepreneurial ladder; overcoming the fear of being assertive while developing skills and strategies to advocate for yourself within relationships and in the workplace; struggling with finances and/or short and long term financial planning. Whatever the barrier, we believe that you are fully competent and capable of achieving your goals and would be honored to have the opportunity to partner with you on your journey.
