BUT, WHY?

According to the National Health Report, racial and ethnic minority women — as well as LGBQT people — face greater mental health risks and burden of the disorders because of disparities working against them. Lack of culturally competent care has the potential to result in worse outcomes than those who do not seek help in the first place.

SIMPLY PUT…

High-effort coping, also known as the “super woman syndrome”, leads to higher rates of anxiety and depression in WOC. The practice of over-delivering and over-committing isn’t worth your physical and mental health.  WOC Therapy promotes personal growth and healing so that you can experience more balanced and joyful living.
