Healing Pathways

“… you are not defective, you are protective – something has happened to you. There is a difference.” 

Ressma Menaken – My Grandmother’s Hands
Welcome! Are Ready to Get Busy?

Come, walk with me. I am a tiler of souls, an Afrofuturist, and a womanist. In this current journey, I continue to understand the importance of owning my life, soul, joy, and the collective future. Now, I champion others’ to do the same by recalling their Divine birthright- as a blessing. Together, we invoke your higher self to reconcile the past hurts of Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs), intergenerational shame, bereavement, scarcity, and toxic racial stress. 

 

I blend 40 years of professional and lived experiences as a mother, a grandmother, a partner, a wife, a solo parent, an artist, a community-based social worker, a school-based clinician, adjunct faculty, and a psychotherapist in private practice with the principles of Somatic Experiencing, Somatic Abolitionism, and methods of ancestral communal healing. This work/journey helps decolonize what we have been taught to think about race, class, emotional wellness, healing, empowerment, and liberation.

 

What if I could remind you that your life is a blessing, a gift to be savored, not labored- Our natural state of our soul seeks to THrive. I want to help foster your innate healing and truth from the inside out! The real question is, are you ready to stop and pause- chilaxe, and slow down enough to claim your God-given space as your divine birthright? Know this. I got you, and together we got this! 

 

~In love, Peace, Joy & Prosperity,  Keita

Aše, Amen, Aho.`

IONA

Hello Beautiful, We are healing Black Wombmen by, for, and about Black Wombmen. "IONA" is a Gullah Geechee interpretation (Daughters of the Dust), meaning "I -Own -Her, "representing a time when Black mothers during the era of Reconstruction could finally own their daughters- their kin. Keita developed IONA to celebrate the legacies of spiritual wisdom, roots-healing, creativity, resilience, ingenuity, steadfastness, and entrepreneurship of Phenomenal THriving Black Indigenous Wombmen.
