Do you feel misunderstood and overwhelmed? Is people pleasing or code switching exhausting? Do you feel disconnected from YOU? Are you searching for a space that is safe to be YOU? Are you hyperaware of your melanin in white spaces? Are you searching for a therapist that understands the minority experience? I recognize the struggles of living while Black. And I champion disrupting White Supremacy and systemic racism. I am a firm believer in order to dismantle racism and White Supremacy we must individually address our trauma, unlearn internalized racism and develop skills to elevate our thinking and regulate our emotions.
I help individuals, couples, and families. I help to restore relational balance and authenticity. I provide a healing space that is welcoming to those who hold multiple marginalized identities. My style is direct, collaborative, and conversational. I use a deeply culture-centered lens and specialize in race-based trauma and historical trauma.

Stephanie McWoods's Groups

BIPOC Womyn Connect Group

BIPOC Womyn Connect group is a process-oriented group. I envisioned this group as a way for many BIPOC womyn who are going THROUGH IT with the global pandemic, racial unrest, being in the home and now wearing even more hats than before (mom, teacher, breadwinner, etc) to cultivate community, healing, and restoration. The topics include: radical self care, relationships, family challenges, motherhood, depression, anxiety, self-esteem, spirituality, and sexuality. My intention is to create a space of trust, inclusion, healing and restoration.
