hosted by licensed therapist, davia roberts

You didn't think I'd write an entire blog post about mental health podcasts and not mention my own, did you??? That's silly!

If you're a woman of color who loves affirmations and wants to learn more about mental health, AFFIRM is the podcast for you.

But because I feel weird writing about my own podcast, I'll share a review from iTunes.

AFFIRM review Redefine Enough

Excerpt from "Like Listening to a friend" review

"Davia is so real and funny that it feels like I'm just sitting and listening to a friend encourage me. She challenges her listeners to care for themselves and rethink how women of color perceive mental health and come to our own experiences of mental health and wellness. Her guests are really cool and inspiring and she's not afraid to engage in difficult conversations with them. Definitely a feel good/gut check podcast for when I want to not talk and just listen."

You can find episodes on iTunes, SoundCloud, & Google Play.


Black In Therapy

Nikita holds no punches. She gets straight to the nitty gritty when discussing and educating listeners about mental health. She explores the unique experience of therapy as a person of color and reassures listeners that they're not alone.

With that being said...

hosted by esther boykin, lmft & erica turner, ms

Listening to "With that being said" is like eavesdropping on two cool therapists as they share a private conversation about love, motherhood, and LIFE. The most amazing part is their vulnerability to share that being a therapist does not mean they have it all figured it out... Take a listen!

Available on Stitcher and iTunes.
