Dr. Qu'Nesha Sawyer
Director of Racial Equity, Inclusion & Belonging
We are constantly pouring ourselves into our jobs, families, friends, and a host of other responsibilities and you may be wondering: “what about me?” Feeling like an afterthought in our own lives can lead to feelings of uncertainty, anxiety, depression and maybe even frustration and anger. These negative feelings may impact your ability to fully thrive.
I believe you were meant to thrive, not just survive. I would love to join your journey as you discover and uncover your strengths, passions, and dreams to transform your present reality of just surviving into one of thriving. In a fast-paced world where spoken conversations are beginning to fade, you need a brave space where you can speak your narratives aloud.
Working with me in a therapeutic space can help you identify and address reoccurring life concerns that prevent you from thriving. My approach is a conversation infused with warmth, empathy, creativity and collaboration. I focus on meeting you right where you are. Your story is your truth, and I believe your truth should be witnessed.
Areas of Focus:
Black Maternal Mental Health
Prenatal and Postpartum Anxiety and Depression
