Session 283: Writing to Heal with Alex Elle

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.

This week I’m joined by Alex Elle, writer, wellness educator, and certified breathwork coach whose work centers on writing and self-care. She is the author of several books and journals including, After the Rain: Gentle Reminders for Healing, Courage, and Self-Love and her brand new release, How We Heal: Uncover Your Power and Set Yourself Free. Alex and I discussed writing as a healing tool and the inspiration behind her latest book, the power of sisterhood and how to cultivate a community that feels non-judgmental, how to lean into your truth and building an emotional toolkit. 


Visit our Amazon Store for all the books mentioned on the podcast.

I'm writing a book! Get updates about Sisterhood Heals.
