Summary

Therapy is all about fit. To bear your most vulnerable thoughts/experiences, it needs to be with someone that respects and values all of who you are. With intersecting marginalized identities it is much harder to know who is safe and who isn’t. 

Finding a clinician who caters to BIPOC and Queer identities is not easy. The difficulty increases for those who also want to reconcile their faith/religious affiliations with their sexuality, gender identity, and ethnicity. Even more so for those who are navigating visible or invisible disabilities. 

Melanin Mosaic Therapy was created for you.
