Healing while Black

Black Lives MATTER.

It's exhausting saying it over and over, feeling like the world doesn't hear us.

It's frustrating feeling constantly misunderstood and judged by other people.

Being Black in America takes a toll, called Minority Stress and often leads to Racial Trauma.

This group aims to provide a safe space for Black people to speak openly with a Black Licensed Mental Health Counselor, Demetrius Williams, in order to heal from transgenerational wounds perpetuating through systemic racism in workplaces, public policy, education, and beyond.

This experience is a "process group" which means that
5-8 people meet face-to-face (by video telehealth through Zoom) with a trained group therapist
to express their experiences, thoughts, and feelings with the group.


By discussing current problems with others,
members gain the perspective, support, feedback, and encouragement from others.
This group requires building trust and respect among group members, facilitated by the group therapist. 


This subject matter may bring up uncomfortable and even painful memories and feelings.

You are encouraged to share as much or as little as is within your comfort level.

That being said, you get out of the group what you put into it.

Process Group

Despite how racism tries
to hijack your future,
you can intentionally choose
to look for beauty and
take a step toward your future.
