Black Therapy Matters
As a Black Owned Business, we have four primary focuses outside of the therapy room to aid in dismantling the stigma surrounding mental health in the black community. All employees, staff, and partners value and support our Black Therapy Matters Mission.
OUR 4 PRIMARY FOCUSES
TRAININGS & INTERNSHIPS
We are intentional about serving in the black and christian community to bring awareness of our need for therapy and other mental health services. A key component to this is participating in community events, speaking events, hosting workshops and breaking down the myths about counseling in relatable ways. Interested in booking us for an event?

Trainings & Internships
We aim to increase the number of future black mental health providers by offering hands-on experience through site supervision and internships. Our training includes direct client hours, professional hours, and skills required to run a private counseling practice that can be diversified in other business settings.

Our partners aid in this cause by providing mentorship programs, financial assistance for therapy, peer support, and other services.
