"The Healing from the Trauma of Racism course guided me through a  process of healing and community building that I so desperately needed.  Thank you Danette for that gift!"

                     ~A.L., Healing from the Trauma of Racism: Part I


"This course has changed my life, by healing a piece of my soul.  I am free of blaming myself, hiding my truth and defending my words  & actions. You have been the angel that set my thinking free, and  your course was the burst of wind that will carry me to the next level of my work."

                     ~N.C., Healing from the Trauma of Racism: Part I


"Far and few are the spaces where we are invited to share our pain,  anger, and strength. Thanks for allowing us all to do that and more!"

                    ~K.G., Healing from the Trauma of Racism, Part I


"I am grateful that Danette has allowed me to be apart of many groups  related to racial trauma. Every group that I have attended has been a  jolt to my system and reminds me that the work the black women, who came  before me, is still very necessary. I believe "our struggles are our  strengths," and nothing that we go through is in vein (for the sake of  torment). I believe surviving traumas comes with the responsibility of  shepherding others through the process. I am newly inspired to continue  my work on race and credit Danette for inspiring me to keep going."

                  ~M.M., Healing from the Trauma of Racism, Part I


"Danette did a wonderful job of assessing our needs first. She made a  brainstorm list of what our concerns are or what we wondered about  concerning the topic. In addition to her own objectives, she included  time and space for our concerns to be addressed. She provided meaningful  readings, and discussions to engage us in discussion as well as  self-care activities throughout her presentation."

"There was no time wasted. No unnecessary material presented. Actually, we probably could have used another session."
