In honor of Minority Mental Health month, Our #WCW/#WOIWednesday goes psychologist and founder of Therapy for Black Girls, Dr. Joy Harden Bradford. Dr. Joy Harden Bradford is a licensed Psychologist in the state of Georgia. Her specialties include working with Black women in both individual and couples counseling. Her primary areas of interest include break up and divorce recovery, depression, work-life balance, relationship skills, and self esteem improvement.
Dr. Joy completed her Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology at Xavier University of Louisiana, a Master’s Degree in Vocational Rehabilitation Counseling at Arkansas State University, and a Ph.D. in Counseling Psychology at The University of Georgia. She has worked for the State of Wisconsin Department of Vocational Rehabilitation as well as in the counseling centers of Virginia Commonwealth University, Georgia Southern University, The University of Georgia, Emory University Oxford College, and Clark Atlanta University.
Dr. Joy created Therapy for Black Girls as an online space dedicated to encouraging the mental wellness of Black women and girls. So often the stigma surrounding mental health issues and therapy prevent Black women from taking the step of seeing a therapist. She developed the space to present mental health topics in a way that feels more accessible and relevant.
