How do you care for your spiritual, emotional, and relational wellness? What have been your experiences as a Black man? These are questions aimed to develop curiosity and self-reflection. Therapy takes bravery and patience too. It can be a challenging, interesting, vulnerable, and illuminating experience.
Taking this step to start your healing journey is a step toward reaching your goals. Working through family difficulties, career stressors and life events takes dedication.

With the collaboration of an empathic therapist, you'll be both challenged & supported. You just might learn new things about yourself while leaving behind patterns that no longer serve you.
