Session 322: Maintaining Lasting Friendships

Update: 2023-08-30


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 versions of ourselves.

How many of us can say that we have a friendship that is 5, 10, or even 15 years old? If you thought that was rare, how about being friends for most of your lives? For today’s session, we’re joined by  lifelong besties of 26 years Lamaya, Aketa, and Keely. Dubbing themselves AMW for ‘America’s Most Wanted,’ this girl group has navigated moves around the country, the raising of children, and busy careers, all while still making time for sisterhood. 

In our session today, you’ll hear the AMW crew talk all about their growth as a friend group from college to adulthood, ways to stay connected when your besties live far apart, and how they’ve managed to maintain their sisterhood in the midst of personal life developments.
