Breaking the Stigma of Mental Health Services

You are a strong Black woman who takes pride in her family and career. Sometimes, however, even the strongest among us need help. At Melanated Women’s Health, LLC, we know that it is especially hard for people of color and other marginalized communities to go to therapy due to the misconceived notion that doing so is a sign of weakness. That’s why we foster a safe, non-judgmental therapy practice where you can get help overcoming the issues that are holding you back from enjoying your life. To learn more about our culturally affirming and anti-oppressive therapy services, or to schedule a telehealth appointment with one of our Black therapists, contact Melanated Women’s Health, LLC, today.
