Session 123: Aunt Vi’s Evolution

The Therapy for Black Girls Podcast is a weekly conversation with Dr. Joy Harden Bradford, a Licensed Psychologist in Atlanta, Georgia, about all things mental health, personal development, and all the small decisions we can make to become the best possible version of ourselves.

Last week, Dr. Mishelle and I took a deep dive into this season of Queen Sugar and this week I have a special treat for all of you anxiously anticipating the finale tonight. I had a chance to chat with the one and only Tina Lifford who portrays Aunt Vi on the show and we had an amazing conversation. We chatted about the evolution of Aunt Vi’s character and how her journey mimics that of so many of us. We also chatted about giving ourselves space and time to tap into our deepest desires and she shared more about the internal work she’s done to allow her to really connect with Aunt Vi’s story.
