About

I provide individual therapy to adults hoping to better understand themselves and their unique experiences. I use a collaborative approach to highlight strength and resilience while assisting in learning to manage depression, anxiety, body image dissatisfaction, racial trauma, and interpersonal relationship difficulties. I specialize in working with women's issues, religion/spirituality, racial/ethnic identity, sexual orientation identity development, gender identity and experiences of people of color. New clients accepted.
My clinical work is influenced by empirical research, and also by my experiences as a first-generation, Black/Caribbean-American woman. I have specialized expertise in working with sexual assault survivors and helping to navigate the healing process. As a multicultural therapist, I value creating a safe space for clients of marginalized communities.
Clients describe me as accepting, nonjudgmental, and understanding. I bring warmth, genuineness, empathy, and humor to my clinical interactions. I value empowerment and validation and aim to use a feminist and culturally aware approach that provides a safe environment to explore and understand emotions and patterns of behavior.

Rashanta Aneisha Bledman's Groups

Women of Color Process Group

This group allows a space to discuss the difficult issues that can be related to being a woman of color in a predominantly white area. Run by Dr. Rashanta Bledman, this group is an ideal space to meet like-minded women and enjoy a supportive environment to discuss: negotiating multiple identities and roles navigating race in professional spaces, addressing multiple layers of racism, understanding relationships with self and others, supporting each other and confronting stereotypes and internalized racism/sexism.
