3 Easy Steps
This 15-minute consultation allows you to ask questions about our teletherapy practice to determine if we are a good fit. If we mutually agree to move forward, you will be required to complete an initial evaluation. The initial evaluation can be completed immediately after the consultation, or it can be scheduled for a later date at your convenience.
During this session, we will go over the informed consent and answer any questions you may have pertaining to it. After you sign the consent form, the remainder of this session will serve as a get-to-know-you session where we will gather background information from you to determine your needs and work together to help define your goals for therapy.
Each one-on-one teletherapy session is approximately 45-50 minutes. Because every individual is unique, our therapy sessions are not one size fits all. Through counseling, we engage you by paying close attention to your stories, validating your feelings, and working on a plan to help you overcome your obstacles and live life at your best.

Racial trauma refers to the mental and emotional injury caused by being exposed to various forms of racism on a daily basis (racial bias, ethnic discrimination, and racial abuse and violence). Black Americans and other ethnic minorities are negatively impacted physically, psychologically, and emotionally due to prolonged exposure to racism. Symptoms of racial trauma are comparable to symptoms experienced with post-traumatic stress syndrome (PTSD). Racism manifests itself in three forms: 1) Systemic racism, which is designed to maintain the oppression of minority groups, is experienced when doctrines, institutions, and policies function to produce racial inequality, 2) interpersonal racism is demonstrated through bigotry, bias, prejudice, and microaggressions, and 3) internalized racism is the acceptance of negative stereotypes and societal beliefs about one’s racial class.
