Helping Others and Activism
Updated: Jan 14, 2021
As you may have seen, there are some painful events happening in the US right now, especially affecting people of color. Many activists are speaking out, which I hope will bring about positive changes. As an American and as a therapist, this touches me deeply, and I have been reflecting on my role as a white person, a woman, and as a therapist on a global scale.
I feel that as therapists, we cannot limit our work to the counseling room, but should also be aware and active in our communities. I have decided to partner with the Loveland Foundation to start a campaign which provides free therapy to black women and girls in the US, who are in need of support.
