You’re most likely tired and exhausted in general. Being a woman of color, you’re up against so much on a daily basis that there can be so much ground to cover and recover again. From anxiety, depression, and struggling to find your voice in the world and in your relationships, you could use some extra support.However, there’s a very specific issue I’ve come across in my work with women of color no matter what they come to therapy for. Your inner voice! You either don't hear it as often anymore or you've grown to not trust it for one reason or another. It used to be loud, but now it's a whisper and you wish you could trust it again.
