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 Dr. Ayanna Abrams, Licensed Psychologist. Dr. Abrams and I chatted all about couples counseling! She shared how she works with couples using EFT, Emotionally Focused Therapy, gave some insight about how the fights we have with our partners are typically not at all about the thing we’re fighting about, and shared what it might look like if she worked with some of your favorite TV couples.
