Deciding to take the next step to participate in therapy can be challenging, but it can be one of the best decisions, especially with someone holding space for you. As a black woman who grew up in a religious home, there was no room for therapy, and I know now that was one of the biggest mistakes made. We all go through things at different stages of our lives. I hope you know you are not alone and that I am here to come alongside you to walk through these complicated issues in life.
