Session 61: Is Virtual Therapy for Me?

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.

You’ve probably heard about virtual therapy as another way to work with a therapist. Today I wanted to make sure you had all the details you needed to decide whether this might be something that works for you. For this episode I’m joined by Melissa Douglass, LCSW who has an entirely virtual practice in St Louis. Melissa and I discussed some of the differences between traditional and virtual therapy, how you can decide if it’s right for you, how to find a virtual therapist, and she shared all of her favorite apps for mental wellness.
