Why don't black people go to therapy?
I went into the therapy profession with a desire to be helpful to my community. However, I found it surprising that most of my clients are not African American. The few African American clients I've had, left saying, "You know people I know!" or " I don't want people to knowing my business!". We as black people are still apprehensive about therapy with a professional of another race because we don't want to use the session educating them on our culture. Some people may also be concerned about what will happen if they are truly vulnerable to therapist of another race; it could lead to extra problems. So we continue to suffer and not reach our full potential. Are some of the reasons listed in this article the reason you don't go to therapy as well?
