clinical executive officer
WORD ON THE STREET
"In her research, Joseph says she has found that cross-cultural therapeutic relationships can mimic the outside world. Think: micro-aggressions by white therapists toward Black clients. . . The assumption is a Black therapist can help a Black person develop the copings skills needed for our unique idioms of distress. This distress is rooted in racism and socioeconomic injustices."
"Once you conquer putting yourself first, then the guilt and shame is dissolved—you’re better able to engage with those around you and you don’t feel selfish for taking time for yourself, says Crystal Morrison-Joseph, a licensed clinical professional counselor."
"Crystal Joseph, in her second year at her private practice less than two miles from the nation’s capitol, recalls the day after the presidential election. “All my clients were crying. They couldn’t verbalize how they were feeling.” Since then, she’s seen “higher rates of panic attacks” among her clients."
