Your Well-Being Is in Good Hands

 

"My philosophy is that every family should be nurtured and cared for during their transition to parenthood. It is a rite of passage that has no manual, only the virtue of patience, sacrifice and sense of community that is necessary to hold space for a family on the other side of birth."

Hi! I'm Desirée Israel, LCSW-C, LICSW, CBS

I am a licensed clinical social worker (MD + DC), reproductive psychotherapist, herbalist, certified breastfeeding specialist and trained birthworker specializing in perinatal mental health, reproductive justice and the Black birthing experience.

I am devoted to the liberation of ALL Black families of the Diaspora by using African-centered modalities and rituals to achieve wholistic wellness.
