As Seen On

As Seen On

I’m Dr. Joy Harden Bradford, a Licensed Psychologist, author, media contributor, and podcast host of Therapy for Black Girls based in Atlanta, GA.You can find me at the intersection of Psychology and Pop Culture. 





I am so excited and humbled to announce I’m writing my first book—Sisterhood Heals—for Ballantine, a Random House Imprint, set to release in the summer of 2023.

A tribute to and celebration of our bonds, Sisterhood Heals is my love letter to Black women and the transformative nature of sisterhood.

Host of the award-winning podcast, Therapy for Black Girls.

Therapy for Black Girls is an online space dedicated to encouraging the mental wellness of Black women and girls. So often the stigma surrounding mental health issues and therapy prevent Black women from taking the step of seeing a therapist. I developed the space to present mental health topics in a way that feels more accessible and relevant.
