About Me

Sydney is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) in her online practice Black On Black Therapy, PLLC, which is dedicated to being a virtual safe space for members of the Black Community and African Diaspora. Sydney provides online counseling and support groups that are culturally responsive, strengths-based and trauma-informed. Sydney is also the creator of the online community, The Sensitive Black Girl, to meet the needs of black women who identify as highly sensitive. Your mental health affects all aspects of functioning in your work, family, social and romantic life. It can be difficult to manage your different roles when dealing with barriers such as difficulty managing anxiety, the stress of being a working professional, racial fatigue with being the only person of color in the workplace or the pressures of maintaining healthy relationships. You need a safe space, free of judgment to work through it all. Sydney is here to offer that space and empower you to pull on the strengths you already have to adjust to life’s inevitable challenges. Community is important to building that resiliency and support groups are a great way to feel... well, supported! Join a group today because you’re not alone and you don't have to keep feeling like you are.
