Education for Black Youth

As a psychotherapist and social worker, I am honored to work with young black youth and their families supporting healthy mental wellness and addressing family issues.  Research demonstrates that systemic issues such as anti-Black racism, poverty, education, systemic oppression, inter-generational trauma and more intersects with mental health and family dynamics.  Given this, the initial assessment in psychotherapy or family counselling includes an assessment of intersection issues.

At times, parents and young people can embrace this assessment and can recognize the impact of anti-Black Racism upon their lives.
