Will people know my business? Won’t my consultant tell? These are the two biggest reasons that scare people away from consulting but, trust and confidentiality are the heart of your wellness consulting relationship.
By law therapists cannot reveal that you are a client to another party without your consent.* *(Unless court ordered) Psychologists would permanently lose their license to practice psychology for violation of the confidentiality law.
Though we do not follow a medical model and we are not legally bound by HIPAA, confidentiality is paramount. Similar to therapists we do not reveal your client status or information to anyone.
Beyond that, we understand that our people rightfully have have deep trust issues in the Black community. Sometimes these issues are childhood experiences. Sometimes these issues are due to intergenerational trauma. Some are from recent experiences. These feeling are valid. Dr. Mawiyah Kambon’s African Centered wellness method begins with trust-building. Our goal is to help you feel confident moving forward together knowing your best interest is at the center of your healing plan.
Office African-centered wellness consulting allows you to leave your usual environment and come to a place where you can “think with a clear head.”

Many people find us from referrals or searching for African-american therapists in their area. Yes, we have two Black women and one Black man on staff currently.
However, do note that we are no longer following a medical model and no longer providing psychological services. If you are interested in African-Centered wellness sessions, self-schedule to book an appointment.
The concept is not specific to one country, group, or nation. African-centered is a concept that embraces family, cultural, and spiritual values that are universal for all African people globally.
We are highly selective since our African-Centered Wellness model is not therapy. In fact, to help our people we believe we must UN-learn some of the damaging techniques european psychology has done through talk therapy.
If you have a counseling, psychology or similar background and you are open to learning new techniques, our service is specialized, and yes, we have job openings.
We are always hiring qualified and experienced staff. Though we do not practice psychology or therapy, psychologists, therapists, and mental health professionals with African-centered cultural psychology experience or training are welcome to apply.
