For women of color, caring for our mental health is not a luxury.
As women of color and working professionals, we’re often torn in a million directions at once. It’s so easy to put our own well-being on hold while we take care of business at work and at home.
But you’ve probably noticed that’s not a sustainable strategy over the long term. By the time we ask for help, we’re often anxious, burnt out, and generally functioning way below our best.
It’s important to find a therapist who gets you.
Women of color have unique experiences in the workplace and in our day-to-day lives. And it can be hard to find a therapist who gets it.
Combine that with the stigma of seeking mental health support that common in many communities of color, and it’s no wonder that we can be reluctant to seek therapy, even when we’re struggling. At Stella Nova, we think that’s an unacceptable state of affairs.
We support women of color with concerns like:
- High stress and anxiety levels
- Imposter syndrome
- Experiences of bias, discrimination, and racism
- Burnout and depression
- Immigration stress and trauma
- Challenging workplace dynamics
- Being the first professional in your family
- Cultural and family expectations
- Multiracial and multicultural identities
- Money and financial stress
- Many more common problems at work & home
