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 Santa Barbara, the suburbs of Santa Barbara, other nearby places such as Ventura, Lompoc, or anywhere else in California, Mental Health Match can help you easily find an experienced therapist or counselor who best meets your needs.

  • They set the stage for a meaningful discussion and inspire you to look inwardly for answers to problems.
  • They can give you tips and tricks to remain calm amidst racial aggressions.
