The Healing Space

The Healing Space is a new therapy training clinic under the UCSB Counseling, Clinical & School Psychology Department (through the Hosford Clinic currently) that specializes in consultation, counseling, and therapy for the Black community, and provided by Black clinicians. We strive to provide a restorative therapeutic space that understands the true nature of racism as well as the unique, incredible resilience and strength of our community. 

The Healing Space was recently awarded a UCOP Advancing Faculty Diversity grant (2021-2023) to create a Black junior faculty mentorship program to foster community and scholarship at UCSB.
