Psalm McDaniels, LSW
Psalm McDaniels is passionate about helping BIPOC folks who want to understand how their upbringing and systemic issues impair their ability to set boundaries. If you struggle to set boundaries with friends, family members, and colleagues or co-workers in situations where your identity is being targeted, Psalm can help you with this. She has contributed her expertise on this topic for a WonderMind article, which focused on telling whether your boundaries are helpful or hurtful to you and the people in your life.
Furthermore, if you are a college student or an adult exploring changes to your identity, going through life transitions, or struggling in your relationships, Psalm may be a good fit to help you manage the stress and anxiety.
Psalm understands many of the reasons you may feel stuck or engage in behaviors that sabotage your ability to achieve your goals. She will help you understand how past traumatic life events such as being cared for by an emotionally immature parent can be contributing to conflicts with your family of origin and depression symptoms. She is a Therapist that encourages self-love, care, and preservation from a social justice informed framework. Psalm will help you increase your level of tolerance for challenging emotions, and become a confident author of your life stories.
