Session 312: Becoming A Therapist, Part III
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 versions of ourselves.
We’ve had dozens of therapists on the podcast sharing their perspectives on various topics, from friendships to meditation and even horror movies. But have you ever wondered what it takes to become a licensed therapist? Well, the road isn’t paved in gold…more like a few years of school and thousands of hours in supervision. But don’t fret, this third installment of our Becoming A Therapist series is for our community members who are therapists, sisters looking to enter the field, and everyone in between.
Joining me today are therapists Dr. Kimberly Applewhite, based in Utah, Dr. D’Andria Jackson based in Ohio, Dr. Donna Oriowo in Washington D.C., and Josephine Ampaw-Green in Colorado. My colleagues and I got candid about our journeys and talked about the different ways to market yourself and increase your caseload, how to navigate social media and ethics, and weighing the options between starting your own private practice or working in a group practice or agency.
