When it comes time to choose a therapist, you may prefer a Black therapist over therapists of other races or ethnicities. This is understandable, considering that you may connect best with a Black therapist or therapist who shares a similar racial background as you.

Wherever you are located in Connecticut from Bridgeport to West Haven or even New Britain, or anywhere else nearby, Mental Health Match can help you easily find an experienced therapist or counselor who best meets your needs.

The Benefits of Working with a Black Therapist

There are several reasons why you may choose to work with a Black therapist over someone from another racial background or identity, and they include:

  • You may connect more deeply with a Black therapist or feel that they "just get you."
  • The therapist may be better attuned to culturally rooted issues that affect your life or therapeutic process.
  • You may better trust them or feel more confident in their skills as a therapist.
  • Some mental health issues may stem from racial injustice, bias, or crimes, and an African American therapist may feel safer to you.
  • A Black therapist may better be able to point to the impacts of racial bias and how they affect your life.
  • You may feel more comfortable and be able to let your guard down more with a Black therapist than if you feel like you must be aware of and fight racial stereotypes.

Just as in the rest of your life, having a Black therapist can help you tap into the healing power of Black community on mental health.
