Find Racial Justice Therapists & Counselors in Tempe, AZ.

 

Many therapists commit to racial justice principles, including working to expose and counter white privilege and heal the effects of racial trauma. Racial trauma can take the form of hurtful social interactions, lack of education and employment opportunities, and more.

Thankfully, racial justice therapists are available not only to help you heal but to empower you to commit to racial injustice. Whether you are located in downtown Tempe, the suburbs of Tempe, other nearby places such as Scottsdale, Gilbert, or anywhere else in Arizona, Mental Health Match can help you easily find an experienced therapist or counselor who best meets your needs.

  • They can give you tips and tricks to remain calm amidst racial aggressions.
