Kujichagulia (koo-jee-cha-goo-LEE-yah) is Swahili for self determination and is also one of the principles of Kwanzaa. Self determination can be defined as the process by which a person controls, and therefore creates, their own life. Assisting our clients in choosing their own paths In life is important to us at Kujichagulia, so we made it our name. Self determination is the cornerstone of therapy, and we strive to empower our clients by providing them with the skills to choose their own destiny. Here at Kujichaguilia Wellness, we value the clients’ experiences and remind them that they are the expert in their own life.
We provide therapeutic interventions and counseling services that assist people in effectively healing from trauma with a focus of helping Black bodies heal from the effects of racial trauma.
We provide therapeutic support for the Black community. This is achieved by being our authentic Black selves and allowing our clients the space to be their authentic selves as well. Code switching and dimming your own light is not encouraged.
