Amira Crawford

Throughout her journey to becoming a licensed clinical social worker, Amira Crawford juggled parenting at a young age and her dad dealing with mental illness. She was able to not only become actively involved in anti-racism work at the Jewish Board, but she now is an owner of a group practice called Therapists for Black Girls.

Crawford was the fifth of sixth children. As a result of growing up in a single-parent household, she helped her mom with her siblings, which never bothered her.
