Who We Are

Her Therapy Space is a Washington, DC based licensed mental health private practice on a mission to help millennial Black and Brown women experience true transformation through 1:1 services, resources, and engagement in a community that celebrates the good, the bad and the ugly of life—together.

Our Values

Respect

Therapy is a two way street. In order for our relationship to thrive, we respect
our clients and ask that our clients respect us as mental health professionals.

Integrity

We are women of our word. Every day. Every time.

Collaboration

This isn’t your traditional “sit on the couch and talk into the void” type of therapy. We take a collaborative, relationship-centered approach rooted in conversation and connection. 

Compassion

We provide a high level of care to each and every person who works with us 1:1 or engages with our community in any way. Full stop.

Inclusivity

All women and female-identifying persons are welcome and embraced in
our brand and work.

Safety

Whether it’s in therapy sessions, masterclasses, events, emails, or DMs, we work
to cultivate safe havens where people feel seen, heard, and understood for who they are.

The HTS Woman

You’re a multifaceted, ambitious, high achieving woman with an entrepreneurial spirit. Brunching with your girls, traveling, and looking fly come easy to you, but you could DEF benefit from making more time for these things (and more). Because you’re always putting others first, you struggle to prioritize yourself…but you’re sick and tired of being sick and tired!

Society’s lack of consideration for women of color has taken a toll on your mental health and you’re ready to take back your power and be who you’ve been called to be FULLY. 

now's it's time to do THE WORK BEYOND THE COUCH!

HTS Always...

  • Meets people where they are and helps them get to where they want to go, one step at a time.
  • Asks good questions and holds space for clients to come to their own right answers.
  • Treats people as the beautiful, unique queens they are and plans treatment accordingly.
  • Speaks truth and holds space for difficult but necessary conversations. We’re not afraid to go there.

HTS Never...

  • Rushes progress or forces a specific outcome.
  • Tells clients what to do or give them all the answers.
  • Fits you into a mold or one-size-fits-all program. No cookie-cutter approaches here, thanks.

Our Story

Founder and therapist Kristin Winchester has always possessed both an entrepreneurial spirit and a deep love for helping women of color thrive. After graduating from graduate school in 2013, she started a business to help black women break free of debt in 2016 (iykyk).

Pretty quickly she realized that more often than not the root of their issues went so much deeper than money: They struggled to prioritize their mental health and themselves in order to see the personal and financial success they desired. So she decided to do something about it. She founded Her Therapy Space in 2019 to fill the gap between traditional therapy and the mental health and wellness needs of modern millennial women of color.

Today, HTS has grown to include a small but mighty team of licensed practitioners and staff and an online community of thousands of women leading messy, imperfect, beautiful lives.
