Deep Eddy Psychotherapy places high value on compassion, supportive community, authenticity, and the healing power of connection and belonging. The racial injustices that the Black community continually faces show how far we have to go in making these ideals a reality for all.
We acknowledge how the BIPOC community has been underserved by our field and we are committed to changing that. We know that the effects of minority stress and racial trauma are severe and deserve care and healing.
We will keep this page updated with what we are doing as clinicians, and as a business, to actively address racism in an ongoing way.

Deep Eddy Psychotherapy clinicians are currently taking a training called “Tending to Racial Trauma During Crisis” with Sam Lee, LPC and Melody Li, LMFT. We are also planning a city-wide workshop for therapists presented by national experts, Dr.s Kevin Cokley and Germine “Gigi” Awad, called: Unlearning Racism and Promoting Social Justice Among Therapists.

We recently donated $5,000 to the Loveland Foundation to help provide affordable therapy for Black women and girls and $5,000 to the Legal Defense Fund of the NAACP. We are in the process of pursuing a partnership with Loveland so that our clinicians can help provide low cost therapy sessions to the Black women and girls they serve.
Our own Dr. Uriel Navarrete provided an in-depth interview for our Ask a Therapist series to explore questions regarding the intersection of social justice, cultural responsiveness, and the practice of psychotherapy.
