Mental Health, Wealth, & Resource Access for Women of Color

May 17, 2023

12:00 pm — 1:30 pm (AZ Time)

A balanced mind and balanced bank account are foundational to achieving self-sufficiency and long-term success—as is the ability to access effective resources that support these goals.

In recognition of Mental Health Awareness Month, please join us for a free luncheon with speaker Ashlea Taylor-Barber, licensed Marriage & Family Therapist, as we discuss the intersection of mental health and accessing culturally competent resources—especially as it pertains to women of color.

Together, we’ll explore the barriers and opportunities in building healthy habits that promote both mental and financial stability.

This event is free and open to the public with lunch provided for all attendees.


Ashlea Taylor-Barber is a licensed Marriage & Family Therapist, relationship expert, keynote speaker and CEO. She graduated from Arizona State University with a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology and an Advanced Masters in Marriage & Family Therapy.

With over twelve years of experience in the behavioral health field, Ashlea utilizes experiential and EMDR techniques, specializing in helping clients move through life transitions, trauma, spiritual and race-based issues, dysfunctional generational patterns, women’s issues, and more.
