“A Safe Space to Heal, Disarm and Be Yourself” with Tamika Lewis

How do you know when it’s time to be supported and have a space for your own growth and healing? A safe space to heal, disarm, and be yourself. Whether there are days that you just don’t want to get out of bed, or you’re hiding in your productivity, this episode is for you. We’ll talk about what it means to lead with our humanity, honor our bodies, and practice self-care.

In this episode, I get cozy with one of my close friends, Tamika Lewis, LCSW.

Tamika is a speaker, writer, and licensed psychotherapist practicing in Los Angeles, California. She is the Clinical Director and founder of Womxn of Color Therapy Inc, a health and wellness community for teens and women of color. WOC Therapy offers free resources like The “Strong Woman's” Guide to Inner Peace, as well as online workshops and courses relating to anxiety, codependency, and racial healing.
