About Us

The Art of Healing Center is a space dedicated to encouraging people of color, and those they love, to recreate who they are and discover what they want out of life. We have spent the better part of our careers helping people who want to improve their lives, but feel too ashamed/embarrassed or have tricked themselves into believing “nothing can help” take the first step to reclaim their power. The Center is designed to be an oasis to support you in the achievement of all your mental health and personal goals.
