    Episode 40: Showing Up for Yourself: An Act of Service with Dr. Tara Jae, Founder & Executive Director at Youth Seen and Co-Founder Black Pride Colorado

    Episode 40: Showing Up for Yourself: An Act of Service with Dr. Tara Jae, Founder & Executive Director at Youth Seen and Co-Founder Black Pride Colorado

    Welcome back and thank you all for tuning in to the latest episode of the Working Within Podcast Season 3! In this week’s episode we are joined by Dr. Tara Jae (they/them), Founder & Executive Director at Youth Seen as well as the Co-Founder Black Pride Colorado. We dive into how showing up for yourself is an act of service.



    You can't show up for others if you don't show up for yourself first, something that might be a little unnatural for social impact entrepreneurs!



    Dr. Tara holds both a PhD and MFA and as the founder & Executive Director at Youth Seen and Co-Founder Black Pride Colorado, Dr. Tara’s work is rooted in an understanding of how communities of color heal, and how to dismantle the stigmas that mental health care needs do not exist within these communities. Tara is skilled in validating and working with racial trauma as it relates to mental health and in organizational spaces. They intricately apply their knowledge of how racialization, racism, and culture greatly impact our experiences of ourselves, our relationships, and our lives. Tangible, honest connection is at the foundation of tara’s therapeutic relationships, not just theory and jargon. Knowing the important role of community in individual healing, Tara scaffolds holistic support for their clients by helping build peer connections outside of the therapeutic process as well.
