There are many mental health professionals who step into entrepreneurship so that they can shape a business around the needs they see in their community.
It can be a challenging, controversial, and personal road to take, but the impact of building a business around your specific calling can leave a strong and lasting impact on the communities you serve.
As much as living in authenticity and embracing your values can empower and support communities, it can also mean losing people in your life.
If you want to create a business that embraces and embodies authenticity, your values, and liberatory leadership, then this episode is for you.
In this episode, I speak with Shawna Murray-Browne, LCSW, owner of Kindred Wellness, consultant and coach on liberatory leadership in organizations, private practices, etc.
Top 3 reasons to listen to the entire episode:
Understand what liberatory leadership is and why it is so important to embrace it.
Hear Shawna's powerful personal story about entrepreneurship and her role in empowering liberatory leadership in organizations.
Learn how to use liberatory leadership to show up as your authentic self, promote love, and challenge colonialism, oppression, and racism in your business.
When you step up to do the work of liberation-focused healing, it doesn't always feel good, and it can be tempting to find the escape route from all of it. It's important to take the time to slow down and allow yourself to not have all the answers, and work together to figure out answers through community, relationships, and love.

Check out Shawna's offer:
Shawna would like to invite folks to get on the waitlist for Decolonizing Therapy for Black Folks—a virtual learning experience curated for mental health and wellness professionals of all backgrounds, serving the Black community with the intention to liberate. In an effort to meet the needs expressed by communities of African descent across the country, this training holds space for exploring emancipatory healing in the therapy space. The content explored centers on the needs of Descendants of Africans enslaved in the U.S., however, the concepts are applicable to offering liberatory therapeutic space for clients of all of the African Diaspora. Participants in this workshop will analyze the impact of systemic oppression in the maintenance of mental health professions, explore the Liberation-Focused Healing framework, and contend with the process of acknowledging the impact of oppressive systems on our worldview and clinical identity.
