Family mediator and relationship coach expert Aerica Karriem recently launched Black Online Therapy dedicated to serving Black families.

As many people stay at home to stop the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19 ), arguments while everyone is together are increasing. Rather stress, built up frustration, or the pain they have been carrying but avoiding for years are now coming to the surface. Families can now access the support they need from the comfort of their homes for themselves and their loved ones for their overall emotional health and well-being and mental health tools that are common.

“Our main focus is to provide a confidential, convenient and affordable way to help prevent the onset or worsening of mental breakdowns or mental health conditions,” says Karriem. “We provide social emotional learning and effective communication techniques to help repair and restore families all over the world.”

Black Online Therapy is an innovative company that is founded on three guiding principles: love for humanity, integrity no matter what, and unity to those who matter the most. The business is dedicated to being a great resource for our communities which is important to the company.

Karriem was a stay at home mom for 14 years. She lost herself and when she realized she had had enough, she decided change was necessary but she didn’t know where and who to turn to. She felt broke and broken. There was no place she was aware of and felt comfortable enough without feeling unfairly judged, like many others.

She decided to take classes, go to seminars, read hundreds of hours of related family and healing books and more importantly she got involved in her community. She became a certified family mediator and relationship coach. Karriem has created a successful curriculum and now she certifies others to do the same.

“I know hurt people hurt people. We don’t want anymore people in the world hurting, so we are committed to go the distance to ensure that we focus on healing deep rooted hurts and pains in our communities,” Karriem. “We’ve had our feet on the ground, have done a great amount of leg work, research and surveying in order to quantify the needs in our communities. It’s been worth it, as our priority is to be extremely valuable for our clients.”
