I am passionate about demystifying therapy and creating treatment that meets Black and brown people's needs- especially those burdened with "Being the First" and constantly told “not mess up.
Congratulations! Your search landed you on the page of a trauma-informed, compassionate, and affirming psychologist. Hello. My Name is Dr. Dennis McLeod- a proud Morehouse Man and graduate of The University of Florida. My journey has taught me that life is hard and the road to success can be isolating and lonely-especially in settings that lack diversity. This is further complicated when asking for help is frowned upon because of cultural mistrust and expectations. All of this may cause hesitation or lead to unwarranted self-appraisal when you should be- instead- celebrating your accomplishments, strength and resiliency!

I see you and recognize your intersecting perspectives and experiences as a Black , Indigenous, or Person of Color.
Accepting New Clients! I've had the honor of serving vulnerable people whose voices are often unheard as a child welfare case manager, advocate for sex-trafficked survivors, and nonprofit leader. I am passionate about creating space for people to be themselves and share without judgment. So I’ll support you as you process the stress of life transitions, grief, relationship issues, feelings of anxiety or depression, and all the things! I honor how valuable spirituality and faith can be when it comes to healing. If you lean on your spirituality and would like to incorporate that into our clinical sessions, I am very open to doing so!

I'm Taschauna Richards, Clinical Therapist at Anxious Black Girls. Clients come to me desiring happiness but often feel stuck and overwhelmed. You may have been feeling this way for some time, and it may have even manifested in your life as depression, anxiety, or some other form of mental distress. If you feel everything in the world all at once, but also nothing at all, or spend your days trying to meet the expectations of others (but struggle to meet your own needs), I want to be a guide and support in your journey to turning things around and living a life that is honest and full of purpose.

Clinical Social Work/Therapist, PhD, LMSW, MDiv

Given I am a black gay male, I specialize in addressing behavioral, mood, and general mental health issues.
My ideal client is one that perhaps is not very sure what they need or want, but is open to discussing, exploring, and addressing any issues that may arise. They are particularly uncomfortable with being vulnerable, but will allow a few conversations to explore what their particular and specific issues may be, including past traumas and sexual abuse issues. This client would be open to exploring their spirituality (not religion) as a means of improving coping skills and strategies.

Thank you for your interest in RESTORE COUNSELING SERVICES--inspiring hope and supporting change. One of the biggest misconceptions about counseling is that only "crazy" people get therapy. In fact, seeking professional counseling reflects sound judgment and determination to "live your best life". My clients are adult women and men, adolescents (ages 15-17), and couples. They have commented on the ease in which they were able to discuss issues and the high degree of professionalism and expertise exhibited. I am proficient in Faith-based/Christian counseling, and competent and sensitive in assisting multi-cultural clientele.

Motherhood is the hardest job on the planet. From the moment that you are pregnant, you may find yourself faced with hormonal changes and unexpected emotions. During the postpartum period, you may find that you have questions about your new identity, a sense of grief over the life you had before, and even with all the excitement there may still be some sadness and the looming question of "Is it supposed to feel like this?" Whether it's clinical issues such as perinatal mood disorders (including postpartum anxiety and depression) or just a sense that something is off and you need someone to process it with, I am here to help.

I work with women who are looking to optimize their well-being. You are that successful and ambitious woman who want to rescript the narratives about your current or past experiences, so you can thrive in your life, work and relationships. You hold the weight of the world on your shoulders, being there for everyone around you, but who's there for you? You feel guilty putting your needs first but what does that leave you; feeling depleted and drained.

Nothing has changed despite your best efforts. Feeling trapped by the weight of your emotions, you feel like even moving a muscle is too much for you to bear. The reflection you see in the mirror no longer looks like the person you once knew. Even worst, It’s getting harder and harder to force the smiles and your body is riddled with overwhelming emotions that never seem to quiet. In a world obsessed with appearing perfect, carrying such a load only intensifies the loneliness. Does this sound like you? Fortunately, there is a place where perfection, or the appearance of such, is not welcomed. That place is my office.
