Session 57: The Do’s of Dating

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.

Today I am joined by the millennial dating coach Marquita Johnson. Marquita is a licensed professional counselor, a nationally certified counselor, and distance credentialed counselor. Her specialties include women issues, career, dating, divorce, step-families, and grief counseling.

Marquita and I chatted about some of the common challenges Black women have in dating, ideas for where to meet new people, how therapy can help you date better, and dating with a mental health diagnosis.
