Last week on our social media channels we posted a community member’s question about struggling with the idea of losing some of your freedom to be in a relationship and it sparked an incredible conversation so of course we had to bring it to the podcast to chat about it further.

Dr. D and I chatted about what it looks like to explore this idea of freedom while in relationships, how you can begin to define what freedom looks like to you, conversations to have while dating that help you gain clarity about this, and establishing a culture in your relationship that can support the many changes you and your partner are likely to experience.

For this episode I am joined by Licensed Professional Counselor & Nationally Certified Counselor, Spirit. Spirit and I discussed the key characteristics of the Black Superwoman, how this construct was developed, how buying into this narrative impacts our mental health, and strategies for how you can gradually take that cape off.

This is a booster session! Sometimes after a client has finished working with us in therapy, they may schedule periodic sessions to problem solve around a particular issue or to get a little extra reinforcement around a certain topic. We call these booster sessions. I'll be using our booster sessions to chat with you about things that just can't wait until the next full episode.

In today's booster session I'm chatting all about Sex with the Ex and this was inspired by the season premiere of HBO's Insecure starring the amazing Issa Rae. This episode does contain spoilers so if you haven't watched it yet, you probably want to wait.

I'd love to hear your thoughts about the season premiere and about this booster session. You can find me on Twitter (@therapy4bgirls) and on Facebook & Instagram (@therapyforblackgirls). Make sure to use the hashtag #TBGinSession to join the conversation.

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's episode features my conversation with Melissa Dumaz, LMFT about creating intentional relationships with our partners. Melissa and I chatted about the best ways to be more intentional in your relationship, how to fight fair, the importance of apologies and how to offer them correctly, and she shared her favorite resources, including her book, The Love Challenge.
