Show Notes

Episode 2: Can we really do it all? In this episode, MProper Mimi is joined by Esther Boykins, LMFT (Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist) from Group Therapy Associates and #Therapyisnotadirtyword. We talk about mental health in the black community and the stigma that is often associated with it. Why are people hesitant to seek out therapy the way we seek out a specialist doctor for our body?  We also talk about about the pitfalls of being labeled as a strong black woman and the pressures that comes with that, including dating!
