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 versions of ourselves.

You may know Michelle Williams as 1/3 of the superstar group Destiny’s Child, but this week she is embarking on a brand new identity as an author with her brand new book, Checking In. In the past couple of years, Michelle has been more open in sharing about the mental health concerns she’s experienced and she is now using her platform to help others to have these conversations to check in with themselves and others. Michelle and I chatted about the various parts of her identity she’s had to navigate throughout her life, the experience of managing depression while being in the spotlight, and keeping some things for yourself as a public figure.
