Greeting, My name is Manicka and I am here to do cultural healing work with African-American men and women impacted by trauma. I am here to help you identify the messages you received in your life that told you that you were unworthy of love, affection, attention and connection. If you've been looking for a compassionate professional to help give clarity to the challenges in your life, then I would like to speak with you. My experience lies in my ability to hold space for you and to help you identify the negative core beliefs that are getting in the way of you experiencing joy, peace, and happiness in your life.
I am a facilitator of Emotional Emancipation Circles which help African Americans heal from the lies of white superiority and black inferiority. My work centers on teaching the tools needed for emotional healing, by reframing the way in which families and individuals see themselves and their challenges by reestablishing a sense of balance and connection to self and others.
