Meet The Speaker
Melody Li (she/ 她) is a queer colony-born immigrant, therapist of Color, and mental health justice activist. Her mission is to disrupt, deconstruct, and decolonize the mental health field.
Sick of seeing minority-identifying folx get burned in therapy, Melody created Inclusive Therapists: a social justice-oriented mental health directory and community that centers the needs of marginalized identities.
With "Embracing Diversity" as the mission, she co-founded Austin Counseling Collective, a boldly inclusive community where she practices.
Melody also co-leads the Austin Therapists of Color community, and offers professional care focusing on decolonizing mental health care and healing racial trauma.
