Therapy for Black Girls

May 2, 2018

The Therapy for Black Girls Podcast is a weekly conversation with Dr. Joy Harden Bradford, a Licensed Psychologist in Atlanta, Georgia, about all things mental health, personal development, and all the small decisions we can make to become the best possible version of ourselves.


Today I am joined by Dr. Lexx Brown James. Dr. Lexx is a sex educating licensed marriage and family therapist and the Owner of The institute for Sexuality & Therapy, LLC in St. Louis, MO. She enjoys educating people on building intimacy, getting to pleasure, and training professionals on how to work with sexuality based topics in trauma informed ways. 


Dr. Lexx and I discussed how to get in touch with the idea that we deserve pleasure as Black women, common types of sexual disorders, how trauma can impact our ability to enjoy sex, getting rid of sexual shame, and the importance of masturbation.
