Imagine waking up to yet another news report of an unarmed black person being killed by the police or a random person. Imagine feeling the weight of not just that individual tragedy, but the centuries of systemic oppression and racism that have led to these events. It's a heavy burden to bear! We acknowledge that these issues are not new, but have deeply impacted BIPOC communities for generations. As a black-owned therapy practice, our mission is to provide a space of compassion and empowerment for healing, where individuals from all walks of life can find solace and support on their path toward healing and wholeness.
Our Team: Committed to Authenticity and Solidarity
Our team of experienced therapists is dedicated to creating a safe space where the dignity, worth, and value of all individuals are affirmed. We practice what we preach by showing up authentically with each of our clients, and we believe that true healing begins with honoring and respecting each of your unique identities and experiences. We are intentional about being in solidarity with our black and brown communities, and we are committed to fostering an atmosphere of openness and trust where you can freely explore and discuss your attitudes, beliefs, values, and behaviors in a safe and non-judgmental space.
Our Approach to Therapy: Discovering Your Authentic Self
At the Truth Center for Health and Healing, our approach to therapy is centered around supporting you in discovering your true authentic self. We believe that everyone deserves to feel safe, seen, and heard, and we strive to empower you to recognize the power of your voice. Our therapists will explore with you the systems that you engage with on a daily basis, such as work, family, community, hometown, gender, race, religion, values, and belief systems. We will help you uncover the parts of yourself that you love, as well as the parts you may want to shift, to promote growth and self-acceptance.
Honoring the Wholeness of Every Individual
We recognize and acknowledge that you come from a diverse background and have multiple intersecting identities that shape your experiences. Our therapists are trained in providing intersectional and multicultural therapy, which takes into account the various aspects of identity, such as race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, religion, and disability, among others. We understand that societal messages and systems of oppression can sometimes make it challenging for individuals from marginalized communities to feel whole and deserving of care. We are here to offer compassion, empathy, and warmth, and to support you on your healing journey.
Addressing Social Justice and Systemic Oppression
We provide a safe and non-judgmental space for clients to explore a wide range of topics related to social justice and systemic oppression. We are trained in addressing issues such as racism, sexism, genderism, anti-racism, ableism, religion, marginalization, ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender identity, guilt/shame, fear, anxiety, and depression, among others. We understand that these issues can have a significant impact on an individual's mental health and well-being, and we are here to offer support, validation, and tools for coping and healing.
Telehealth Services: Accessing Care from Anywhere
The pandemic offered a unique circumstance for our society. It allowed people who had very limited access to therapeutic services to start taking care of themselves in a new way. Now we can also give space if attending in-person therapy sessions may be challenging for you. That's why we offer telehealth services, using a secure and HIPAA-compliant platform, to provide accessible and convenient care. Telehealth allows you to access therapy from the comfort of your own home, eliminating barriers such as transportation, distance, and scheduling conflicts. We are committed to making therapy accessible to all individuals, regardless of their location in Pennsylvania.
