About

We work with individuals, families, and children. We specialize in trauma including generational trauma, perinatal, immigrants, parent-child relationship issues, depression, anxiety, self-esteem, and family conflict. Our greatest intention is to help you understand yourself better and improve your quality of life and relationships. We tailor our approach to the needs of each person or family, responding to your unique problems, identities, and realities. This is not a one-size-fits-all practice because we trauma-informed and social-emotional focused practices from a social justice framework.
As a growing group of racially minoritized Black and Asian clinicians, we are experienced in supporting your needs. By providing a safe and thoughtful environment, we collaborate with you to develop a deeper understanding of who you are and what you want to gain from therapy. From EMDR to Expressive Therapies, we are support what you need.
We know first hand that it can be tremendously scary to seek help whether for yourself or for a child that you love. You are already making such huge step in your process by reviewing therapist profiles. If you think we might be a good fit to assist you along your journey, schedule a free consultation at playfulleighpsyched.com.
