Safiya McHale, LMSW


I am a Black, Afro-Caribbean, queer therapist who is passionate about liberation and embodiment work.  I specialize in working with people on eating disorders and relationship to food and body, racial identity, gender

identity, and cultural identity. I also have experience working with people on trauma, depression, anxiety, chronic illness, and relationship concerns.

I approach therapy with an intersectional, decolonizing, and liberatory framework. I believe that a collaborative, trusting, and strong therapeutic relationship is the foundation of therapy, and I work with all clients to find

the best approach for them, using a holistic approach that often incorporates Relational-Cultural, DBT, CBT, Mindfulness, and Motivational Interviewing approaches.

I believe that you deserve healing that affirms and celebrates your whole self, and that you shouldn’t have to compromise aspects of who you are to receive care.


My goal is to provide a space for you to bring all of who

you are so that we can uncover what healing looks like for you.
