“Thank you for offering this training in December on Intersectionality of Black Lives. I was thankful I could attend. As a white female social worker, I do seek out ways to learn about how my privilege affects my interactions with others. I am trying to build my awareness of what I need to change. I appreciated his attention to the importance of pushing for systemic change and pointing out how so many experiences (and the past enslavement) of BIPOC lead to complex trauma and survival behaviors and should not be pathologized.”

Preferential Peace, LCSW, P.C Vision Statement

Our vision is to use our training and practices as NYS Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) and NYS Credentialed Alcohol and Substance Abuse Counselor* (CASAC) to support traditional psychotherapy and engage in anti-racism and anti-oppression frameworks to begin the authentic healing and personal liberation for people of color.

More traditional clinical approaches are also utilized to support those struggling with anxiety, addiction, anger management, coping skills, family conflict, infidelity, life coaching, marital and premarital issues, men's issues, parenting, relationship issues, court-appointed forensic evaluation custody, and visitation litigation.

Obsidian & Indigo Consultants, LCSW, P.C. Vision Statement

Our goal is to support liberation-based organizational training that counters the generational trauma of oppressive practices, privilege, institutional microaggressions, implicit bias, and white supremacist behavior. Our training and consultations are specifically geared towards BIPOC professionals and white allies in nonprofit or corporate environments.

Contextual and historical racial wounds and trauma exist for BIPOC populations. As empathetic professionals, we acknowledge the Black and Blue experience (literally and metaphorically speaking) and understand the experience of Black bodies subjected to oppressive conditions.
