Welcome, I'm happy your'e here!

You’re here because you’re hurting, navigating through the complexities of relationships, the pressures of work and life, and the challenges of understanding who you are and your place in the world. Your experiences as a Black, Indigenous, or Person of Color over 30, especially if you’re a man, carry with them unique pressures and traumas, from childhood and beyond. Perhaps these have left you feeling disconnected, undervalued, or struggling to find fulfillment. You might even feel trapped in a cycle of isolation and helplessness.

Your pain is valid, but it doesn’t have to be your endpoint. If you’re feeling stuck, know that there’s a way through.

Reclaiming your power and voice starts with a single step. Are you ready to take it?

Reach out, and let’s talk about what living the life you truly deserve looks like for you.

Tracy A. Long, MS, LPC, NCC, BC-TMH, EMDR Trained​

Owner|Psychotherapist|Certified Mindfulness Meditation Coach

Hey there! I’m Tracy

As a black trauma therapist, I know first-hand the courage it takes to seek help. My own journey began with a failed attempt at counseling, discouraging me for years. Fortunately, my second attempt changed everything. Connecting with a Black therapist who truly listened renewed my faith in this profession and fueled a life-changing realization of purpose. I became committed to offering expert care in childhood trauma, relationship challenges, race-based trauma, and mindfulness meditation for Black and Brown men over 30. By starting my private practice, I strive to break down the barriers of stigma, time constraints, and cultural misunderstandings that too often prevent men from getting the support they need. You are allowed to reach out for help without judgment, and I’m here to offer an understanding, safe space where your experiences are respected, your time is valued, and your healing journey is our number one priority. 

You’ve already done the hardest part, which was getting here. Why not the next step?
