As part of our "Archival August," we are re-releasing episodes from the past that have held specific significance for me recently, as I take some time for personal healing. This episode was recorded in the very beginning of my anti-racism journey, a touching conversation at a pivotal moment.
Mishara D. Winston, LCSW is a Black, queer, creative adventure therapist and the owner of an uncommon social & emotional wellness sanctuary called To Indy, With Love. To Indy, With Love focuses on gathering, playing, feeling for communal healing. Each of it's services (mental wellness coaching, experiences & speaking) are specifically crafted for Black, Indigenous & PoC, LGBTQIA+ people and Indiana folks of many faiths, helping them to remember our ancestors were mental health experts and we can socially and emotionally heal ourselves and each other.
Her work is found at @toindywithlove on IG & FB and at www.toindywithlove.com.
Mishara has redefined what it means to be an adventure therapist in the Midwest. She shares with Sarah her experience as a Black woman navigating the standards for professionalism (whiteness) in the field of social work and how she uses the power of choice to care for herself.
