    Episode 254 Women in the Workplace
    Today was the first day I found and started listening to this podcast and it resonated with me so much as I moved out of Atlanta from college to a predominantly white area for my work. This episode gave me some really good insight I feel early on in my career that I can use moving forward. Thank you Dr. Harden Bradford and Dr. Thomas!

    Informative and Entertaining
    I didn’t know how much I needed this podcast. As a women in her 40’s living in Kansas it is hard finding Black spaces. This podcast gives me my own space. A space that is relatable. A space for Black Women. Thank you so much for creating a healing safe place

    Much needed podcast!!
    As a therapist and a consumer of podcasts of love this content. So informative as well as relatable. Interviews are always well thought out and valuable. Love everything about Therapy for Black Girls!

    Love the show, not the episode descriptions
    As much as I love the show, I wish the description of each episode was at the top of the text rather than after the description of the show. We know what the podcast is about, but telling us what each episode is about is more important. Too much text to read or scroll past makes me delete the episode. I listen to a lot of podcasts, this is the only one that does this.

    Dr. Harden Bradford’s podcast is empowering! I’m continually enlightened and inspired by her expertise, topics and guests. Not only does Dr. Harden Bradford’s work help me personally, I share it with my 32 year old daughter and others which exemplifies it’s community impact This gift and resource is invaluable!
  • BossChick2958493858594
    This podcast is amazing and also the first one I’ve ever reviewed. I’ve learned many a lesson here that’s impacted my personal and professional life. I’m a budding therapist currently getting my masters in Marriage and Family Therapy and I use some of the techniques learned here to assist with helping others. Thank you.

    Excellent space to feel understood and comforted by other beautiful women
    I’m new and I’m making my way through the podcasts of interest and even some I didn’t think I’d like but I find learning about different topics very valuable. I also have enjoyed the three for Thursday chats, the check ins, book club and the sex talk in September with Goddie (Goody). Definitely will stick with this beautiful community of women who aren’t afraid to say I need help and I don’t have it all together as society pegs us as the strong black woman… We have pain, tears, deep feelings, struggles, wins, love, accomplishments, blessings from God, everything a human being has. We aren’t super human and if we have a tough exterior it’s the way we’ve learned to cope and care for ourselves. Love this podcast and Dr Joy’s “Sister Circle” app. It’s well worth my time and energy to get and give support to fellow sisters of any color.

    Content needs refresh
    Great podcast when I started listening a few years ago, but now the format is more interviews and sometimes gets a little self-promoty for the guests. But I get why bc BW experts and professionals have little spaces/platforms available to them so this show provides that. But perhaps a spin-off show would be better for that.

    This woman is doing god’s work.
    It’s so valuable. That is all! Kudos to you, Dr. Joy! 💛
  • anjiegrhm
    This is a much needed resource
    I’m a new listener and so far I love it. I have started listening at the beginning episodes and I find the encouragement and advice very helpful. I also like to read the reviews of podcasts that I am new to. I read a review where the listener said they felt the podcast was racist, and I simply don’t understand how they arrived there. So often as black women we are told we have to include everyone while simultaneously being excluded by everyone. There are plenty of podcasts that cater to other demographics but very few that address the issues, needs and concerns of black women. Please keep doing your podcast as is. As a black woman in my mid forties I’m just now learning how to advocate for myself and that includes finding spaces where I can be my full self and feel valued as a human. I’m only a few episodes in and this is one of those spaces. I appreciate you sharing your expertise with us. It’s very much needed.
  • Loverforfashion
    I absolutely still love the podcast but I feel like the topics are lacking lately. I personally love more of the self help topics.

    Been a fan still a fan
    Undeniably a MUST for Black women and other women of color.🔥🔥🔥M. Farook
  • imobsessedwithk-pop
    It’s okay
    I really like this podcast and the messages it’s giving out but, I see it as racist .Black women aren’t the only females who struggle with things or need to be encouraged, their are many other women who need motivation and inspiration not just African American women. It’s really good just need to work on giving inspiration to other cultures.
  • ColorMeNesha
    Thank you
    I love this podcast. I need a therapist like her. If you’re a woman of color. Please listen to this podcast. She touches different topics that women like us faces. I told my mom about this podcast. My momma love this podcast.

    Favorite podcast
    I recently started listening to this podcast for about a month or so but I can honestly say I absolutely love it, whenever I can manage to have a moment to myself this is my go-to. Dr.Joy is amazing and she is enlightening and well-informed on situations that matter to women of color.

  • Curiosity.kills
    I love this!
    I’m surprised I haven’t wrote a review for TFBG. This is my all time favorite podcast, and I love what Dr. Joy is doing for the community. I’ve been listening to this podcast consistently since about 2018 and it’s helped me so much, and has even helped me connect to the therapist I’m working with now. The content, stories, and experiences she creates are so meaningful and necessary in today’s world. I’m really grateful to get a notification each Wednesday about a new episode and love all the gems I get from listening. Please don’t change! I love this and can’t wait to read your upcoming book ❤️
  • Mama Honey B

    Amazing and Beneficial Podcast
    I found this podcast yesterday, and I have been binging the episodes. I went through the 200+ episodes and saved all the ones I felt spoke to me, and have been listening to them. I think I’ve listen to about 15 so far. I will definitely be replacing tv time with podcast time. So glad I came across this podcast.
  • KG2875

  • Moolit Betty
    I wish I could give more stars...
    I don’t know why I haven’t written a review yet...but this podcast has been essential to my growth as an individual. The conversations are insightful, to-the-point, and really hones in on the dynamic you can find in therapy. I have had so many validating experiences while listening to this show and every episode seems to center me. Started listening during quarantine when I didn’t have the words to explain why things weren’t coming together when I had all this time to finally think and utilize what I thought were tools to improve my mental state. I have recommended this to all my sisters...because generational trauma is real ...and continue to share it with others.
  • Spency1993
    I love this show. I found a safe space as a Black women with this amazing podcast.
  • isah1998
    Guests could go deeper…
    The potential is there! The host is great at guiding the conversation and asking the right questions but it seems like the guests answer her questions in general terms, it drives me nuts! It would be more personal if the guests used some of their own real life antidotes and clear examples. No need to use names of course but just saying “uncovering is the first step and then depending on what it is, we can go from there” is extremely vague and doesn’t fully answer the question. I also think the conversation would be richer if the host included her own commentary to provide more of a back and forth dynamic. Not combative but to challenge/add to things the guests say. I would also like to see her push her guests more, tell them to stop being so general and really answer the questions!
  • KamaraKya
    I truly value and love this podcast
