In this episode Weeze and Josh break down what it looks like to be on a healing journey, while Black. They talk about the history of violence toward Black and Brown folks in the psychological and psychiatric community, how this increases with identity intersections such as Queer, Trans, and Non-Binary, what it means to provide trauma informed care, why we hear that Black people don’t go to therapy, and how we can reclaim our healing journeys in ways that feel safe to us.
Louiza Doran, known and referred to as Weeze, is a cis-het Amazigh* female identifying human who uses she/her/they/them pronouns. She’s known as a coach, podcast host, advocate, agent of change, strategist and educator (to name a few) but is ultimately a compassionate provocateur that is out to help folks uncover their path of possibility.
