In the wake of Richard Spencer’s visit to Gainesville, FL, I sat down for a timely emotional conversation with counselor Kathleen Joseph. Kathleen talks about fighting cancer, experiencing racism, and struggling to find a therapist in a field of mental health professionals who don’t look like her.
When editing this episode, I chose to leave in many of the long, heavy silences between us. It just didn’t seem right to cut out the places where we may have been the most uncomfortable. I hope to invite Kathleen back soon and risk even more discomfort. I found our talk extremely worthwhile.
