Welcome to Shades of Resilience Counseling, Where Understanding Meets Transformation.

At this very moment, you might be seeking a space that not only acknowledges but deeply understands the intricate paths you’ve journeyed through. Here, your story, with all its unique challenges and victories, especially as a professional navigating the complexities of balancing ambition with personal wellness, is not just heard—it’s truly seen.

Imagine a sanctuary where the pressures to always “be strong” and the weight of unspoken struggles are lifted off your shoulders. If you’re feeling the toll of microaggressions, the often-invisible barriers to your growth, and the silent battle between personal fulfillment and professional excellence, I’d love to help you get relief from the pain of these experiences so you can begin to create the life that you so richly deserve.

Hey there! I’m Tracy

You’re here because you’re hurting, navigating through the complexities of relationships, the pressures of work and life, or the challenges of understanding who you are and your place in the world. Your experiences as a Black or Brown man over 30 carry unique pressures and traumas from childhood and beyond. Perhaps these have left you feeling depressed, powerless, 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. Consider this a sign if you’re feeling stuck but are ready to get unstuck. It’s an invitation to step into a journey towards healing and self-discovery, where every challenge is seen as a stepping stone to a more empowered you.

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

It’s Time To Take Back Control Of Your Life

Let’s work together to unlock your full potential and build a stronger, more resilient future.
