I'm Nisha Patel
A Licensed Clinical Social Worker and the face behind the space Brown Girl Trauma.
Brown Girl Trauma is a Mental Health and Self-Growth community for Adult Children of Dysfunctional Families.
The central question that drives my work is, “How can we break the cycle of family dysfunction?” To answer that question, I like to write about ways to reparent your inner child through healthy self-growth & mental health practices.
We are a community of cycle breakers.
