“Bringing people together is what I call ‘ubuntu,’ which means ‘I am because we are.’
Far too often people think of themselves as just individuals, separated from one another, whereas you are connected and what you do affects the whole world.
When you do well, it spreads out; it is for the whole of humanity.”
- Desmond Tutu
Our lives and humanity are inextricably tied to one another.The concept of Ubuntu captures the essence of our interconnectedness and shared humanity, and it informs my approach to healing. When we heal ourselves, we heal the world.
I started Ubuntu Healing Collective as a manifestation of my values, passions, and my commitment to the contributions I want to make to our community and the mental health field. Ubuntu Healing Collective will provide therapy services to aid people in healing from trauma, organize mutual aid for therapists, and create networks to provide safety and mentorship for clinicians of color and clinicians holding other minoritized identities. We strive to foster connection, holistic healing, and liberation.
