Brown Girls Counseling has exclusively worked with women of color providing mental health counseling to deal with issues connected to self-doubt, unhealthy relationships, and unhealthy habits. These are some of the concerns that create additional stress and make the positive transitions you are trying to so make difficult.
We are here to help you, let go of the past and break down the barriers that are preventing growth.
As your therapist, I will be here to listen and support you, validate your feelings and experiences, and then help to develop an action plan for change all while making sure you get some self-care.
Now, the approach...
I will use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Person-Centered approach to support you in your journey. Black feminist theory, various pieces of Black Racial Identity Development (BRID), and Intersectionality are also used to understand your experiences and reasons for participating in therapy. The goal is that together we will create a bias-free, texture free, colorism free environment where the focus is making you feel safe and supported to address your concerns.
I encourage you to connect with me for an initial phone consult and from there we can discuss next steps. There's no better way to know if this will work.
Now a bit about Keniesha,
I’ve worked in various agencies with adolescents and young adults. While I enjoyed that work I realized there was a profound need to create a safe space for minority females. I enjoy working with women who are experiencing difficulties with various transitions, for example, high school to college, between jobs or degree programs, and even relationships.
