A Safe Space for
Since 2018, The Sisters' Couch has been building community, eliminating mental health stigma through curated events, and connecting Black women to licensed mental health professionals.
Founded in 2018, The Sisters' Couch is a welcoming space dedicated to building community among Black women. Our mission is to break down the stigma surrounding mental health by facilitating shared learning through curated and intimate mental health events.
We are committed to connecting Black women with licensed mental health professionals to ensure access to quality care and support.
We do this by:
Increasing self-preservation among
Educating Black women on
Creating an intimate community
Providing direct connections to
mental health professionals of color
Caring for myself is not self-indulgence;
it is self-preservation, and that is an
act of political warfare.

About the Founder
I'm Alandra Chuney Jackson, LMSW, and I bring over 10 years of experience as a therapist and mental health advocate to the “couch”. With a strong background in event curation and community building, I founded the Sisters’ Couch in 2018 with a clear mission — to create a safe space for Black women where they can share openly and feel validated.
This vision was born after a conversation with my sister, who expressed her desire for support from a therapist. Drawing from my own encounters with mental health challenges, I recognized that our experiences were unique. Black women deserve a space where they can feel safe, be vulnerable, and have access to licensed professionals. The Sisters' Couch is space for Black women to do just that.
Thanks for joining me here on the couch!
Immersive and carefully crafted, our intimate events offer Black women a safe haven for open dialogue on mental health. Additionally, we offer tailored facilitation services for your team, family, or girls' group gatherings.
