Women's Therapy Center, 2105 Martin Luther King Jr. Way, Berkeley, CA 94704 

The Equity Committee at the Women’s Therapy Center hosts a no-fee, monthly peer consultation and support group for therapists of color in the Bay Area. Trainees, interns, pre- and post-licensed therapists are all invited to attend. One of the goals of the group is to encourage therapists of color to have an active voice in the psychotherapy profession. The group also offers an opportunity for therapists to network, find community, and share their experiences and expertise.
