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, a 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.

Do you find it difficult to ask for help? Asking for assistance doesn't equate to weakness, it's actually a strength! As an African American / Caribean counselor I am able to serve my community with relatable shared experiences. I pride myself on encouraging my clients to see and be the light that is already within them. I use an integrative approach in that each individual is unique and processes thoughts differently. Mindfulness-based CBT allows clients to find peace within themselves through grounding. This heightened awareness of self enables us to live in accordance with our values even in the face of opposition.

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.

Tired of parenting in survival mode? Is finding joy and fulfillment in motherhood a challenge? Well I might be the perfect therapist for you! My specialty is helping mothers find balance, inner strength, and clarity of mind. Being mom is hard enough. Having to navigate hard emotions such as depression and anxiety makes it harder. Sometimes unbearable. 1 in 5 to 7 moms suffer from postpartum depression and often alone. Mom, you are the source of life! You have a big job and you deserve support.

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.

You are either emotionally loaded or emotionally numb to your present circumstances because of your past experiences. The memory of these experiences trigger discomfort, isolation, or thoughts of regret, and you’re tired of being controlled by your past. You want to feel happy and show-up fully for your friends, family, and partner, but you just can’t seem to shake it off enough to be present.
