We are a multiethnic and multiracial group practice that centralizes care for BIPoC and LGBTQIA+ communities. Clients who come to us are working though life challenges related to their identities. They are often in a process of self-exploration, working to make sense of their place and identity in the world where they are made to feel like "the other" and have been marginalized, traumatized, and blatantly microaggressed. We recognize the importance of finding providers who get it, from a shared and lived experience. Here, our aim is connect communities of color and queer communities with providers of color and queer providers.

My clients are driven and ambitious moms in the throes of motherhood, feeling overwhelmed by the dual demands of her family and her personal aspirations. Often, she struggles with feeling disconnected from who she once was, as if her own needs and desires are perpetually on the back burner. Her goals are to regain a sense of self, achieve balance, and enjoy both her mom life and her personal growth without feeling guilty or stretched too thin. She wants to feel fulfilled and present in all aspects of her life, understanding that she can be both a devoted mother and more than just a mom.

I was inspired to name my business SPEAK counseling services because I truly believe that untreated mental health and substance abuse dependence stems from our inability to understand how it is our mind, emotions, and body is trying to speak to us. Similar to when we stub our pinky toe and we get a shot of pain ; our body will send us symptoms of anxiety, depression, recurrent dreams etc in an effort to communicate pain/discomfort. Since mental/emotional pain is a foreign and misunderstood language we often lean on behaviors that sooth It quickly (e.g addiction) this increases anxiety/depression as the pain is never truly managed.

Here is another day that you are feeling defeated and tired. All your friends tell you that you should be excited about this news. However, all you can think about is the continued dread and panic that comes to mind with the idea of becoming a brand new parent. You start thinking about the finances needed; you contemplate the notion of how to manage your day to day. It all seems too much and excessively overwhelming. The anxiety is driving you mad. When you talk to family and friends, they all tell you don’t worry about it… but, how can you not worry?

My ideal client is open and honest in her presentation and is eager to work on identified issues. This client is committed to treatment and arrives weekly (or biweekly) for therapy sessions as per treatment agreement. Ideally, my clients would be somewhat self-reflective, although this is not a requirement. Self-reflection tends to promote the development of insight.

When one makes that decision to seek emotional guidance, I understand the vulnerability and the bravery of that moment.
