Join the Therapy for Black Girls Community

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.

This week’s episode features Lisa R. Savage, LCSW. Lisa and I chatted about why Black women often engage in emotional eating, how it’s connected to trauma, and strategies you can use if emotional eating is something you struggle with.
