Jahkazia "Jae" Richardson (she/her and they/them): firstname.lastname@example.org
I am a Black, femme, licensed clinical social worker and a healer, energy worker and educator. Through my own root work, I discovered my calling was guided by three principles: Healing is resistance. Magic is resistance. Resistance is liberation.
I use collaboration, affirmation and empowerment to support others in their own healing work and practice from a social justice, holistic and afro-spirituality framework. I also integrate skills from CBT, EMDR and DBT into my counseling work. To ensure I'm delivering the highest level of care, I'm training with David Young Oh, LCMHC, at Radical Healing, as my clinical supervisor.
My passion towards individual and collective healing stems from own trauma work. My desire to break down generational traumas runs deeply and vibrationally. As marginalized individuals, we must heal our communities on a spiritual, vibrational, and psychological level, and I am honored to walk with you in your journey towards finding the ancestral power within you.
In addition to counseling, I am a facilitator of safe-r spaces where I support grounding meditations, rituals and spell-workings.
Ty Cardwell (she/her)
Seeking therapy can be an intimidating process. For some, it's a necessary step on the journey towards greater peace and healing. My goal is to create a safe-r, nonjudgmental and supportive environment for all my clients so they can heal, grow, and develop effective coping mechanisms. I specialize working with adults struggling with substance abuse, anxiety, depression, and ADHD and have specialized experience working with neurodiverse folx.
I look forward to working with you in tackling any clinical concerns and mental health needs so that together, we can devise a treatment plan that will work best for you and your unique circumstances.
CasSandra Calin (she/her)
I am a queer, femme, cisgender Afro-Cuban LCSW. I became a clinical social worker because I know how helpful it can be to have a space, set aside specifically for you, where you can bring your joys and stresses and leave with tools and power.I work with children, adults, and couples and I have 7 years of experience supporting predominantly queer and trans clients and people of color. I additionally enjoy supporting clients in polyamorous or kink-based relationship dynamics.
My clinical approach is to work with you to figure out how you see yourself now, what you want to be different, and how you want to get there. I am excited to support you in developing your own truth about who you are, or who you want to be, once you have had some time and support to sift through your beliefs about yourself and where those beliefs come from.
Hope Lewis (she/her)
I am a Black queer femme from the suburbs of Philly. I believe every person is the expert on themselves and what they need out of therapy. I enjoy working collaboratively with folks and seek to provide a non-judgemental, open, and compassionate environment.
My therapy style is rooted in a recognition of systemic and individual oppression with a focus on liberation and community care for all. I acknowledge the guidance of my ancestors in all the work that I do.
I have experience working with Black and Latine youth, LGBTQ+ youth, and their families. I am interested in working with BIPOC and LGBTQ+ folks in discussing identity development, intersectionality of identities, experiences with marginalization, relationship issues, depression, and anxiety.
In my free time, I love to dance, go to concerts, watch reality TV, and read stacks of memoirs and romance novels.
