Therapists of Color in Rhode Island
Finding a therapist of color whose racial or ethnic background matches theirs is often one of the most important factors in a therapist search for persons of color (POC). Studies have shown the importance of finding and connecting with POC therapist: persons of color will often view ethnically and racially similar therapists as more in a position to understand their culture, values, and experiences, especially those relating to oppression, racism, and intergenerational trauma. Diversity in the therapy community is an important component of reducing mental health disparities among Black, Asian, Latinx, and other people of color; however, it can be difficult to find therapists of color, especially outside of large cities.
