About Dr. Aziza Belcher Platt

I am a licensed psychologist providing culturally-responsive individual and group psychotherapy, family therapy, and psychological assessment. I treat various concerns and specialize in racial-cultural issues, trauma, and grief. I was inspired to get into mental health to contribute to efforts to make therapy more acceptable, accessible, and affordable particularly for marginalized communities. Social justice and liberation are an indelible part of my work. For patients, I aim to eliminate barriers, structural and otherwise, to seeking and receiving quality and culturally competent mental health care especially for underrepresented and under-served communities. As a practitioner, I strive to help the field and practitioners become increasingly more culturally aware and responsive. As a scientist, I focus on health disparities and evidence-based research to inform culturally responsive clinical practice. I hope to integrate the skills from my previous career as a software developer into my psychological endeavors.
