I have 10 years of experience in Psychiatric Hospitals/Facilities and Community based agencies. I specialize in African American psychology, and how the residual effects of slavery, racism, systematic stressors, toxic culture norms and religious trauma hinders our relationship building, hinders our happiness and exacerbates our stress. In addition, I also have a strong background in trauma, depression, anxiety, several forms of psychosis and personality disorders. My community focus are Black and Brown people but I am clinically and culturally competent to help all people heal and become better, regardless of race or ethnicity.

As a woman, I am an advocate of women living in authenticity and in true purpose which is why I joined The Black Girl Doctor.
Does it feel like things are spiraling out of control? Have you noticed changes in your mood, difficulties with work-life balance, or trouble adjusting to changes in your life? So many of us wear masks as we navigate the many roles within our lives, and all the accomplishments, levels of education, and titles don’t seem to change that. Instead, they might make things more complicated. Everyone needs someone and deserves to be supported especially when faced with challenges.

As a biracial Black cisgender female, my professional and personal identity is rooted in leveraging my various identities and privileges alongside themes of resilience, community care, and social justice passed down through generations.
I am part of the team at the The Aguirre Center for Inclusive Psychotherapy, which provides Individual, Relationship, and Group Psychotherapy as well as Psychological Assessment. We believe that you deserve to work with someone who understands and affirms the complexities of your identities. In our work, I will bring myself into the space.

I know firsthand what it feels like to show up for myself, even when I don’t feel it. As a Black woman, I understand how hard it is to live authentically in a society that makes you feel like you aren’t enough. My ideal client is someone who lives at the intersection of multiple minority identities. I enjoy helping individuals cope with stress, anxiety, depression, issues related to identity and the impact of organized religion. I prioritize Black and non- Black queer people of color in my work.

I work with adolescents and young adults who feel confused and alone. Do you struggle with identity or the feeling of being an outlier or black sheep? Maybe a major life event at home, work, or school has brought up some difficult emotions. Perhaps you've experienced emotional, physical or sexual abuse or maybe even neglect, which might leave you feeling numb or overstimulated, fearful, and worried. All these factors could be impacting your thoughts, relationships, and ability to sleep.

In my practice, I work with Black women between the ages of 18-55 and mother daughter duos, with daughters as young as 12.
Welcome! My name is Dr. Terri Tanisha. I am an expert in helping Black women heal their inner childhood trauma wounds to break generational curses and create healthier relationships.

In life it can feel like there are many barriers we have to break through. We feel like all the pressure is on us and sometimes we do not feel supported, seen, or understood. We may doubt ourselves. We have the pressure of career, children, relationships, and it can be exhausting, not to mention overwhelming. However, we do not have to break those barriers down alone! Our goal is to help our clients understand self-love, compassion, and assist in problem solve and create a safe space to overcome the barriers in life.

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!

As a black therapist, I can offer a lived experience perspective to help you work through the extra things you're dealing with that might be impacted by your own identity.
I love to help aspiring people find new meaning of life by sorting through feelings of worry and hopelessness instead of avoiding them like an annoying telemarketer. My clients struggle just like you do. Despite being successful, intelligent, and as sweet as a Georgia peach, life is hard. When they first come in, they feel overwhelmed with every aspect of their life. What once seemed like a small hurdle has turned into an Olympic sport to overcome. They can hardly remember feeling motivated and feel like joy has vanished.
