Bio is from the time of the interview:

Dominique Barnes-Walker is a Licensed Social Work and, an Individual, Couple, and Family Therapist. Dominique works with a wide variety of individuals in therapy but loves working with people of color. She endorses several other skills within the field and as a research assistant, she focuses on engaging Black families in therapy. She has been my hero since the day we officially met. I spoke to her about her research when I was thinking about launching The Research Her podcast and was delighted to learn that her research focuses on the Strong Black Woman Complex which is a topic greatly related to the mental and emotional wellbeing of many of us. She has been such a bright person in my life so it was an honor interviewing her for the show.

Dominique grew up in Chicago and is a first-generation college student. She attended The University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign where she obtained her Bachelor's degree in Social Work then continued on to earn her Master of Social Work. She is currently a Ph.D. candidate at Adler University and her dissertation topic is titled "The Impact of Strong Black Woman Stereotype on Romantic Relationships"
