We are back for a new season! For the month of May, we will have the honor of hearing from Gabes Torres. Gabes is a Filipino/a/x psychotherapist, organizer, and member of the Speaking of Racism community + Advisory Board.
Melody Li joined Gabes for this episode to discuss de-centering whiteness in Therapy.
Melody Is a colony-born migrant & settler, therapist of Color, and mental health justice activist.
They created Inclusive Therapists (www.inclusivetherapists.com): a social justice-oriented mental health directory and community that celebrates the strengths & centers the needs of marginalized communities.
