We live in a world where our culture hasn't always been valued/accepted. Generations before us did not have access to counseling and individual therapy. They were not allowed to be their full selves, it has not and in many instances still is not safe to be your full African/Black self. A lot of times we are told that only one version of "Blackness" is acceptable & anything outside of that accepted "Blackness" is viewed as a threat. And...yeah...sometime it be ya own people.
It's time to give yourself permission to be free! I mean truly free, as if there is nothing or no one who can stop you. In places like Ypsilanti, Detroit, Flint freedom can feel elusive. When Nia Simone said "Freedom is...NO FEAR" I felt that in my spirit. We can let go of fear, fear of judgment, fear of rejection, fear of invalidation. Embrace yourself fully, be unapologetic in your cultural/spiritual heritage. If you're ready to come get dis healing schedule an appointment or consult.

It's rough to grow up with a family that does not see you or with parents who don't give you the love you long for. Growing up with emotionally immature parents or in a difficult home were you or others were abused/neglected has a lasting impact on you and this is where trauma therapy can help. Even in our adult bodies sometimes we still feel like that little child who wanted to know that they were good, loved, & important.
Healing is possible and counseling/individual therapy is just one of the tools we use. Imagine what it would be like to free yourself from those memories of pain, shame, and guilt. What would it be like to look at yourself with love & gentleness, to speak to yourself with care & kindness? What would it be like to watch those memories play out without feeling like they are taking over your body and mind? Schedule an appointment or consult to find out.
