Offering Hope for the Hurting


helping people live in hope as they journey from hurting to healing


We aim to implement the vision of Healing Hearts by:

  • Offering counseling with a personal and nurturing touch. Our desire is to “take the walls off counseling”, and thus, we typically provide services in nontraditional settings.

  • Reducing enrollment paperwork and fees. Healing Hearts does not accept or bill any insurance for services. However, our passion is for the client holistically. We want you to choose the Self-Care option of counseling AND still be able to meet your daily life financial obligations; and thus, we offer second to none counseling services at a rate that allows you to afford taking care of ALL of you.

  • Debunking the stigma and myths surrounding mental and emotional health and wellness, particularly in the African American Community. Our desire is to meet this need under our collaborative umbrella, where we partner with Churches, Colleges and Universities, and Community Organizations. For Healing Hearts, we believe the journey to healing starts with a conversation, and we offer the opportunity to say, “Let’s Talk”.
