Session 23: Let’s Talk Teens

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.

This week’s episode features Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist & Teen Expert, Jaynay Johnson. Jaynay and I chatted about some of the common struggles Black teenage girls struggle with today, how pop culture and social media influences her work with them, and shares tips and strategies to help you better understand and communicate with the teen in your life.
