Black Therapist List

Black Therapist List was created in 2020 by a black psychotherapist in Ontario. It is a growing directory of black therapists practicing in Canada of many different designations and expertise.

It was created so that black people who are seeking mental health support could have one central hub to locate black therapists.

Healing in Colour

For BIPOC, finding a therapist who understands our lived experiences can feel next to impossible. Healing in Colour strives to make that search easier.

We offer a directory of BIPOC therapists who are committed to supporting BIPOC in all our intersections. By helping to connect our community in this way, we aim to revitalize a legacy of healing, liberation work and resiliency practices that have been lost/taken.

Inclusive Therapists

Finding a therapist should not feel like a gamble.

All people with all abilities in all bodies deserve equal access to identity affirming, culturally responsive care.

We aim to make this process simpler and safer.

We center the needs of Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) and the 2SLGBTQIA+ community. We honor the full neurodiversity spectrum and advocate for mental health care accessibility for people with disabilities/ disabled people.
