Creating, finding, and leaning
into balance is OUR form of healing,
and healing is OUR act of resistance...
WHAT THIS IS.
Beauty in the Balance is a community space that aims to help Queer, Black, and Indigenous, Women, of Color journey towards increasing balance, and emotional wellness in life through community, education, and self exploration. Accessibility and connection to healing spaces is our passion here at Beauty in the Balance. Join us for our next event and sign up to join our support group!
The Founder and Owner
Jessica Stewart, LPC
Hello, I am excited that you are here. Let me tell you more about myself! I believe in authenticity and relatability not just in branding, but in all things that I do. I am a child of Nigerian immigrants, raised in the States, honoring my cultural identity is a core value. I aim bring all of who I am to the personal and professional and create spaces for other folks to do the same.
My professional experiences can be summed up into advocacy and empowerment of the rights of all with a specific emphasis on the rights of Queer, Black, Indigenous, Women/Girls, of Color QBIWoC.
I am the Chief Program Manager at Open Door Talk LLC providing leadership, organization, and services to community in the Northwest Georgia regions.
I wear many hats. What business owner doesn't? I am an expert in human trafficking prevention and education with valuable experience, working as speaker, consultant and trainer nationally. In addition, I have worked in a variety of Atlanta based counseling centers, schools systems, and child welfare spaces where I provided counseling to individuals, who have experienced trauma, PTSD, domestic violence, addiction, grief, depression, anxiety, and other mood disorders.
I specialize in helping companies, individuals, and communities process society's engagement and interaction with identities that have historically been marginalized. Over the years working in mission based non-profits and for profit organizations I continued to see the same patterns of societal oppression being reflected in organization practices and culture leading to workplace trauma and burnout. Even the most well-meaning spaces found themselves contributing to harm and the lack psychological safety needed for employee success.
I have a passion to create thriving courageous anti-oppressive workspaces using research based, culturally, and trauma informed tools and tools. This is pivotal in supporting the communities these organizations serve.
Beauty in the Balance provides a service that empowers and centers of the voices of teens and women of color whose mental health is directly impacted by these inequities.
I bring my years of expertise, passion for village, and communal healing practices to this space. Holding space is what I do, but taking up space is my continued revolutionary practice as a black woman.
Here at Beauty in the Balance, we aim to offer that to you.
We can't wait to journey with you.
Show Up for you Sis.
Here are the spaces to do so!
As a therapist, I am passionate about helping you navigate your depression, anxiety, relationship stressors, and grief. I aim to provide a safe and courageous space where you can come and express the fullness of who you are while exploring your goals to achieve holistic wellness.
You are the expert on you. I aim trained in helping you navigate the journey towards healing. I specialize in struggles with anxiety (to include social, co-dependency, generalized, and life transitions), boundary issues, depressive disorders, and grief and loss.
Our events create safe spaces for self exploration, connection, and growth. Check out pictures from past events.
