Mahogany Bridges Mental Health Services LLC.,
You've already taken the first step; now is the time to start the journey!!
Mrs. Thompson specializes in treating individuals with past or current trauma. We all have experienced something traumatic. Often times we don't even realize we've gone through something traumatic. Trauma within the Black and Brown communities have been often times normalized and or minimized. Trauma essentially is like holding your breath and not knowing it. We can release your trauma one breath at a time.
“Therapy is the bridge that leads you from trauma to healing"

Your journey will begin with one small step...
Experienced Trauma Counselor
Frequently, we find ourselves grappling with traumatic experiences without even realizing it. Within Black and Brown communities, trauma has often been normalized or downplayed. You may have heard phrases like "just get over it" or "you'll be all right" at some point in your life. These responses, whether from family members, colleagues, or even from within ourselves, have been intended to help us navigate through the aftermath of deaths, violence, abuse (physical, medical, or sexual), and societal microaggressions.
But what if I told you that it's perfectly acceptable to not feel okay at this moment? What if I assured you that being a human and having an experience, even one that has recently halted you in your tracks, is absolutely valid? Perhaps you feel like you don't have the luxury of time to cry, sit down, and simply exist. In that case, I pose a question: What would happen if you allowed yourself a moment of self-care?
