As black women, it often feels as though we have to carry the weight of the world on our shoulders.

All while managing the stress that trauma and oppression have on our physical and mental health. It may be rare for the people around you to offer help, but you don’t have to worry about that here.



Here we have open and honest conversations about mental health and all the ways oppression and marginalization affects our bodies as black women - from depression, the strong black woman stereotype, eating disorders, and everything in between.  



We put capes on our backs and support ourselves, our families,
and our communities.
But often, it’s to our own detriment. 
It’s time for change.



Welcome.

We raise families, build communities, and create movements.

The Bodyful Healing Project exists to help black women feel more vital, and by vital I mean having a sense of what it feels like to be well. 

Black women, we are are strong.

48% of black women have some form of cardiovascular disease

Black women are 50% more likely to suffer from depression than white women

20% more likely to report experiencing serious psychological distress than white women

We Talk About Feelings...Alot!

I created The Bodyful Healing Project because as a black woman living with depression, I often felt alone and misunderstood. 

The Bodyful Project is the first step, for me, in creating community, changing the narrative around mental health within black communities  and offering a creative healing option.
