Beyond just being a therapist, I am a black woman who married a white man and am raising a multiracial son. We come from very different families who each have different traditions, rules (spoken and unspoken), communication styles and ways of moving through the world. These have influenced how we relate to each other as a couple. Our son will have a different experience than either of us. Within multiethnic and multiracial families, once these differences are brought to light, deeper relationship can exist, as well as the joy of truly knowing ourselves and being known by our loved ones. Within multicultural families, issues of power, privilege and difference become personal. Partners who have grown up with different social locations (race, class, gender presentation, sexual orientation, ability, etc..) may find it difficult to understand each others worldviews'. As a social justice counselor, my role is to help you navigate these challenging conversations and move through stuck feelings.
