National Queer and Trans Therapists of Color Network

Despite our growing awareness of the impacts of trauma—individual, intergenerational, historical, and collective—we still live in communities that lack the conditions necessary for healing. For queer and trans people of color, mental health resources are largely inaccessible due to cost and the ways in which racism, queerphobia, transphobia, and ableism are embedded within systems of care. The National Queer and Trans Therapists of Color Network is a healing justice organization that recognizes the role of systems of oppression in the trauma we experience in our daily lives. We seek to build healing resources rooted in social justice and liberation.

I am a clinical social worker, healing justice practitioner, and trainer who believes that the communities and leaders most impacted by systems of oppression carry essential expertise and solutions for their healing and liberation.
