Chief Transformation Officer and Clinical Director

I work with adults and couples from a decolonial lens that focuses on healing the black community and other groups that have been historically marginalized especially those who struggle with ruminating thoughts and negative self-beliefs - perpetuated by familial, cultural and societal expectations. 

Whether a student, parent, career woman, leader, healer, or change agent, I will support you in transforming the inner critic {internal oppression & imposter syndrome} and explore ways to outwit the outer critics {naysayers and systemic oppression} to become your ancestors' wildest dreams. 

My approach prioritizes psychological safety through mind-body practices that regulate the nervous system to help you take soul-centered action toward your liberation.

Who Am I

Greetings, my name is Gena Golden, LCSW, NBCFCH. I am a holistic and culturally attuned psychotherapist and a board-certified fellow of clinical hypnotherapy.

Individual Therapy

I practice from a holistic (mind, body, soul-centered) approach seen through a cultural and liberation-focused lens. I act as a conduit for healing that validates and normalizes your humanity and lived experiences. Whether I am working with individuals, couples, or families, we can explore intergenerational and ancestral traumas and triumphs that shaped who you are. I aim to honor you and your people's cultural nuances, practices, and traditions.

Couples Therapy

I weave diverse modalities that focus on healing and improving relationships in my therapeutic approach. Through understanding interpersonal neurobiology, I help you and your partner recognize and navigate the dynamics influencing your connections with others. Social justice principles inform our exploration of how systemic injustices impact relational dynamics and contribute to healing collective wounds. Liberation-focused approaches empower you and your partner to redefine and cultivate healthier, more equitable relationships free from oppressive influences. Holistic modalities support you in fostering harmony and alignment within yourselves, enhancing your capacity for genuine connection and intimacy.
