It can be quite frustrating when a relationship is not working out the way we wished it would. Sometimes we try to fix the relationship, and other times we decide to part ways. No matter where you are in this process, therapy can help bring the hope and clarity you need to move forward. Growing up in Chicago as a bi-racial African American woman, I was able to see many differences between cultural communities and the effects they had on an individual’s self-love and relationships with others. I decided to become a therapist to help people feel more satisfied in their relationships, starting with self-love!!

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.

It is my belief that individuals desire and require validation and recognition in the midst of challenges. Change can seem impossible when experiencing stress, depression, and being submerged in life’s many challenges. By engaging in therapy, change is tangible. This process can unlock your deeper truths concerning life, present opportunities to learn yourself, and really discover your life’s story. In my work, I focus on centering Black womxn, men, adolescents, and POC who may be burdened by challenges related to depression, anxiety, relationship stress, integenerational trauma, and racial and gender-based microaggressions.

It is extremely discouraging when our fears, self-esteem, or mood get in the way of living a our lives the way we want and making rewarding connections with others. It is even more challenging when you also experience personal trauma or trauma on the community level. A culturally in-tune therapist can help. When I work with you, I take all aspects of your cultural identity into account so we can understand the whole picture of your life experiences together. You can feel safe to talk openly about your unique experiences tied to your racial, sexual or gender identity and the intersectionality of those and many more aspects of you.

I began working in the area of mental health over 25 years ago, the last 18 years have primarily as a child and family therapist. I have worked with children in a variety of environments from in the home to schools and foster care. Working with children led me to expand my practice to include working with parents and families. Currently I work with a mix of adults, families and children. In addition to treating a range of challenges from anxiety to trauma, the life issues people face are also a key part of my practice, such as divorce, death of a loved one, a move to a new home or country and bullying.

We do not always anticipate some of the obstacles that suddenly require a helping hand, a steppingstone, or a bridge. If you are currently experiencing any such challenge in your life, please reach out for help and support. I can provide counseling for the entire family, couples, individuals, and any of your loved ones. If your family is being impacted by addiction, marital conflict, behavioral & mental health concerns and other life challenges, your time might be now to receive some help.

What type of Pembroke Pines mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.
How to find a therapist in Pembroke Pines?
When looking to find a therapist, it is certainly important to consider training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Understanding cost and insurance coverage is an important concern for many people. With some basic research and conversations with prospective therapists, you should be able to have a good understanding of the best way to afford therapy.
