At Pan African Wellness we heal, teach, and we restore the power within our community members. We take pride in the three C's, which stand for coaching, culture, and connection. We believe wellness in our personal life, as an athlete, or in our professional life is not something that can exist singularly. Wellness lives in the alignment of our emotional life, physical body, and our spiritual life. Further, it becomes more obtainable when we bring conscious thought to how we manage our energy, our relationships, and our own minds. We coach to create a winning personal narrative, develop a winning life strategy, and restore harmony through establishing personal standards.
The Spirit of JEGNA
Pan African Wellness is founded in the spirit of the Jegna, as we know you don't need a degree to heal or help someone manifest their Inner (G). A Jegna is African term that speaks to a person who is a protector of culture and is not afraid to speak truth to power. A Jegna is full of integrity and is committed to the welfare and protection of a people. It is a spirit that wants to see individuals grow into the best version of themselves. It's a selfless nature that finds joy in seeing others manifest their blessing. We train everyday people, community members, and family members to be the Jegna in their home, community, job, and the world.
At the Pan African Wellness, we honored the lived experience of our community members and believe that training and a certification from Pan African Wellness provides individuals with the knowledge, supports system, and the tools needed to serve the community. We empower everyday people to take back the authority to heal, inspire, teach and motivate as the true healing power is in the heart to connect.

Taking that initial step in owning our story can be tough and scary. We all need someone to walk alongside us, as we journey through the process of owning our story, and learning to love ourselves and those around us. My goal in therapy is to help individuals live and behave in ways consistent with their personal values while developing psychological flexibility. I specialize in somatic therapy, helping individuals reconnect with their authentic self from a mind, body, spirit approach.
