Meet Dr.Connie Omari

Hi. I am Dr. Connie Omari and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor, Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor, National Certified Counselor and Certified Clinical Trauma Professional practicing in Florida, North Carolina, Virginia, and Georgia. I founded Black Marriage and Family Therapy Matters Directory in response to the overwhelming need to provide marriage and family resources for black families. While this vision was originally developed based off my own lack of resources available to me during the development of our own black marriage and family, the vision was birthed in response to my dissertation entitled “Marital Attitudes and Expectations: between Blacks and Whites in America.” This 3-year journey and 200 + page paper, coupled with the birth of my two children during this time made me keenly aware of the lack of marriage and family resources available for black families.

I knew that there needed to be a change. From this, I formed the Black Marriage and Family Therapy Matters Podcast and Directory. My hope is that this serves as a platform to connect black families to black therapists… one black family… and one black therapist at a time. After all, Black Marriage and Family Therapy Matters.
