The following is a listing of POC Spirit Care Providers. Each one has verified they are QTPOC inclusive providers. They hold various kinds of trainings and methodologies of teachings as well as coming from various spiritual backgrounds and disciplines. We do not specifically endorse the practice of any one provider, rather we offer this space as a way to connect POC & QTPOC with providers who might meet their needs for spiritual care and companionship. Each person has to find the right-fit provider and only you can know who that might be. Hopefully, this is a useful starting point for folks seeking providers who are often difficult to find - POC & QTPOC spiritual care providers who are inclusive of all gender and sexual identities.
If you are a spiritual care provider and you would like to be added to this directory please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.

POC, queer, spiritual companion you can add to your listing
Studied expressive and experience based therapies in the University of Chicago's Master of Social Work program. Faith practices are energy based and ancestral.
1. Adventure and creative expressive therapies for poc, queer people and people who are religious minorities. I am often folks first therapist or the first they have seen after a not so helpful Eurocentric focused therapy experience. I work well with people who do not feel ready to be verbally vulnerable in the typical therapy types.
2. Mental Health education through creative events and experiences (cooking classes, moon-shine cocktail making classes, etc.)
3. Consulting for institutional equity for systems that want to better acknowledge, understand and affirm marginalized groups.
