With almost 20 years of clinical experience working with individuals and groups. Dr. Walker has worked as a clinician and in leadership positions in private child welfare settings, hospitals, residential, outpatient and criminal justice settings.
Dr. Walker understands the pervasive effects of racism. And how we, as Black professionals, can best grow and fight against its effects via healthy boundaries and coping strategies as opposed to learning to accept racism as part of the American culture.
Many black professionals experience specific micro-aggressions (both sexism and racism) in the workplace where our non-people of color colleagues feel they are exempt from being racist just by the simple nature of being in the “helping profession.” We all know too well that this is assuredly not the case.
Dr. Walker works with all Black (BIPOC) people; with a special emphasis on adults who work in the health and nonprofit sectors. She works collaboratively to facilitate growth in individuals struggling with intergenerational trauma, complex trauma, acute stress, depression, anxiety and stopping the cycle of unhealthy relationships all while maintaining within a society which thrives on systemic oppression.
