You no longer have to pretend to be okay.
All you've wanted is to receive therapy to openly share your thoughts and feelings while being listened to with empathy by women who can relate to you. At KQH, you can.
All of our psychotherapy sessions take place remotely over a confidential video call via a phone, computer, laptop, or tablet to keep you and your family safe until we can meet in person again, considering COVID-19 restrictions.
From the comfort of your own home, you can enjoy the same personalized therapy approaches you would receive during face-to-face therapy sessions.
THERAPY FOR NEW YORK RESIDENTS
You deserve a culturally-competent therapist educated on the nuances of being a woman of color.
There's no need to code-switch or hide parts of yourself from us.
At KQH, you will get the real experience of putting it all on the table for an unbiased third-party to work through the things you are going through with you.
Get the most out of therapy with evidence-based interventions tailored to you.
We use cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), grounding techniques, mindfulness, eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR), and emotional freedom techniques (EFT) to help you be a better you.
Therapy by appointment only.
Definitions you should know.
You may not know what some of the terms on our website mean, but we will make sure you do to feel more comfortable with the therapy process.
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is a form of psychotherapy that focuses on modifying dysfunctional emotions, behaviors, and thoughts by interrogating and uprooting negative or irrational beliefs. It is considered to be a "solutions-oriented" form of talk therapy.
Too often, we feel like our issues are not “big enough” for therapy, but if you are reading this, they are.
For 60 minutes, speak your truth, get your feelings off your chest, and receive the skills and tools you need to feel better about whatever is bothering you to a woman with a lived experience of being a woman of color.
By processing any underlying feelings or thoughts impacting your life negatively to someone who will understand where you are coming from, you will be able to get the most out of every therapy session.
"KQH offers such a transformational experience. Before working with Kezzia, I didn't know how to process my trauma and its effects on my mind and body. We've been working on EDMR therapy, and it's helped me begin to process past traumatic events. Using grounding techniques (e.g., breathing exercises, visualizations, and EFT), I can finally support myself when I feel triggered by my trauma or anxious. Unpacking my trauma hasn't been easy, but I've felt supported every step of the way. I'm very happy to have found her."
Personalized therapeutic approaches
Maintaining a healthy relationship with another person can be challenging at times. Even the most loving couples can find themselves either not on the same page or at odds with each other.
If you are looking to clarify your feelings about your relationship, resolve roadblocks in your relationship before they become insurmountable hurdles, or deepen the level of intimacy and connection you have with your partner, couple's therapy is for you.
Couple's therapy sessions last 60 minutes with you and your partner present, working towards improving the state of your relationship.
Adulthood can be very challenging. We are expected to know how to manage life after college with no guidance. If you have a specific issue or situation you are struggling with then coaching is for you.
Coaching sessions are 60 minutes. There are action steps, progress check-ins, feedback, and results planning. Some of the issues are:
Create work-life balance
Establish healthy routines
Develop courage, confidence, and self-worth
Reframe negative self-talk
Build and strengthen relationships
Accomplish life goals
Coaching is not therapy. if you are struggling with any mental health condition and live in New York contact us to book an appointment for therapy.

Sisters Circle Support
Group For Active Clients
A private Facebook group for active clients. This virtual space was created to help clients as they go through various changes and challenges throughout the stages of their lives.
Together, we can heal and grow from hearing shared experiences focused on issues impacting women of color.
We will talk about culturally-insensitive workplaces, isolation, low self-esteem, negative body image, negative thoughts, and more in this online group to empower each other to become better, happier women.
Dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) is a type of therapy that focuses on self-acceptance and behavioral change. This skills-building group is about accepting your reality while working on changing things in your life that does not serve you.
The group is for women seeking ways to help regulate their emotions, increase their distress tolerance, and improve their relationships.
Each week you will learn helpful coping skills that can help you see immediate changes.
This DBT workshop is very skill-based, like other workshops, and it's culturally conscious, unlike other workshops. I fit in. When I'm with the group, my thoughts are encouraged and challenged in ways that help me achieve "Wise Mind." My feelings are also impacted in positive ways. I notice that I can face my feelings directly and quickly, instead of feeling sorry for myself or distracting myself. Basically, I'm braver. Now, I know my thoughts and feelings don't determine my value. I'm always good, even when I feel bad. I'm a good person, even when I have bad thoughts. It's usually very hard for me to achieve this kind of balance, but currently, I achieve it at least once a day.
