The Therapy for Black Girls Podcast is a weekly conversation with Dr. Joy Harden Bradford, a Licensed Psychologist in Atlanta, Georgia, about all things mental health, personal development, and all the small decisions we can make to become the best possible version of ourselves.  This week I’m sharing a conversation I had with Ashley McGirt, a clinical social worker based in Seattle Washington, about living well based on her experiences as a hospice therapist. Ashley and I chatted about the kinds of concerns her clients discuss while in hospice, how family members of those in hospice can take care of themselves, the impact that race related stress is having on the mortality rate of Black people, and her tips for living a life without regret.   Resources Mentioned Visit our Amazon Store for all the books mentioned on the podcast!   Where to Find Ashley https://ashleymcgirt.com/ Facebook: @mcgirtcounselingservices Instagram: @therapywithash   If you're looking for a therapist in your area, check out the directory at https://www.therapyforblackgirls.com/directory.

For this conversation I was joined by Dr. Shanita Brown. Dr. Brown and I chatted about how you can recognize the signs of domestic violence, why it’s important to understand domestic violence in the context of power and control as opposed to anger management, how you can support a loved one who may be in a relationship with an abusive partner, and she shared tons of incredible resources for anyone who would like additional help.   Resources Mentioned Visit our Amazon Store for all the books mentioned on the podcast!

Last week on our social media channels we posted a community member’s question about struggling with the idea of losing some of your freedom to be in a relationship and it sparked an incredible conversation so of course we had to bring it to the podcast to chat about it further. For this conversation I was joined by Dr. Maria Dominguez, LMFT, also known as Dr. D. Dr. D and I chatted about what it looks like to explore this idea of freedom while in relationships, how you can begin to define what freedom looks like to you, conversations to have while dating that help you gain clarity about this, and establishing a culture in your relationship that can support the many changes you and your partner are likely to experience.  Resources Mentioned Visit our Amazon Store for all the books mentioned on the podcast!   Where to Find Dr. D https://www.drdthemft.com/   Facebook: @dr.dthemft Instagram: @dr.dthemft Dr. D on Youtube   If you're looking for a therapist in your area, check out the directory at https://www.therapyforblackgirls.com/directory.

Last week, Dr. Mishelle and I took a deep dive into this season of Queen Sugar and this week I have a special treat for all of you anxiously anticipating the finale tonight. I had a chance to chat with the one and only Tina Lifford who portrays Aunt Vi on the show and we had an amazing conversation. We chatted about the evolution of Aunt Vi's character and how her journey mimics that of so many of us. We also chatted about giving ourselves space and time to tap into our deepest desires and she shared more about the internal work she's done to allow her to really connect with Aunt Vi's story.

This season of Queen Sugar has certainly provided us with lots of drama!

For this conversation I was joined by Licensed Psychologist, Dr. Mishelle Rodriguez. Dr. Mishelle and I chatted about what kinds of things we might address if Nova came into therapy following the release of her book, the way that we have seen many of the characters deal with big emotions this season, our thoughts about Darla and Ralph Angel seemingly reconnecting and what we’d love to see as this season wraps up.  Support Our Sponsor Join me Sunday, September 8, 2019 at 8pm/7 Central for this year's airing of Black Girls Rock!

This is me. So very true. I'm glad I can identify this problem now. The "natural genius" is me. It's so easy to do things it feels like I didn't earn it.

I truly think that the competition and urge to be the perfect mom comes from 1. seeing our mothers do it all but never truly seeing the negative aspects of keeping up with doing it all, because you know we love to put in a front and break down in a closet/car or 2. If our mothers didn't do what we felt needed to be done as a parent we decide we are going to get it right, not realizing that what our parents did was the best They CLD do and in turn we overcompensate. And put on a Front. And break down in the closet/car lmao
