Session 39: Self-Worth

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 versions of ourselves.

In today’s episode I discussed misconceptions about self-worth and the importance of self-compassion. I also answered an On the Porch Question about being too “nice.”
