Why does decolonizing therapy matter? Body-based counselor and Spirituality & Health staff writer Julie Peters explains.

Julie Peters is a yoga and meditation teacher, counselor, and Tarot reader based out of Edmonton, Alberta. She is a staff writer for Spirituality & Health and the author of two books: Secrets of the Eternal Moon Phase Goddesses: Meditations on Desire, Relationships, and the Art of Being Broken and the Canada Book Award-winning Want: 8 Steps to Recovering Desire, Passion, and Pleasure After Sexual Assault. She offers live and on-demand yoga as well as one-on-one sessions online through her website Follow her on Instagram @juliepeterswellness.

Her article "Decolonizing Therapy" is featured in the November/December 2022 issue of Spirituality & Health.

"If the therapist or the counselor is not actively working to decolonize themselves in whatever ways they can, they will only ever be reinforcing whatever the dominant cultural narrative is."

In this episode, Julie and Rabbi Rami talk about Freudian therapy, cultural colonization, and therapy for women.
