Aziza Belcher Platt, Ph.D.
Dr. Aziza A. B. Platt is a licensed psychologist providing culturally responsive individual and group psychotherapy, family therapy, and psychological assessment. She treats various concerns and specializes in racial-cultural issues, trauma, and grief. She was inspired to get into mental health to contribute to efforts to make therapy more acceptable, accessible, and affordable particularly for marginalized communities. Social justice and liberation are an indelible part of her work. For patients, she aims to eliminate barriers, structural and otherwise, to seeking and receiving quality and culturally competent mental health care, especially for underrepresented and under-served communities. As a practitioner, she strives to help the field and practitioners become increasingly more culturally aware and responsive.
As a scientist, she focuses on health disparities and evidence-based research to inform culturally responsive clinical practice. She hopes to integrate the skills from her previous career as a software developer into her psychological endeavors.
