After being stigmatized for decades, mental health is frequently the subject of national headlines. Unfortunately, while the conversation about support is gaining momentum, access to providers has not kept pace. The practice of modern day therapy is still viewed as a luxury commodity where many people, communities of color especially, are not adequately represented or served.
In the last episode of 2020—a year where mental wellness has been threatened for all—I am honored to be joined by Amenah Arman, a nontraditional therapist for biculturals and creatives based in Atlanta.
On this episode we talk about:
Why it’s so important to feel understood by your therapist without having to educate them, Getting past the fear of being judged for your imperfections, The fine line between counseling and coaching, Resources to help you avoid burnout and move past stuckness, and How to find a therapist that works for you.
