I am Halle. Graduated from Clark Atlanta University with a Bachelors of Arts in Psychology and a Masters Degree in Social Work. Certified through The Matrona as a Holistic Birth Doula and true advocate for healing of self. My passion for healing has been a complex long one. I was a carefree, fun, loving kid. I loved everyone. I always had a heart for those who did not have much. Growing up in a home where my mother was a substance abuse counselor for homeless individuals. Yea, care for people was always in me. As I got older, things began to manifest into the curiosity of why do people do what they do? What mentally drives people?
At that point in my life, it promoted me pursue my love and passion through education. I attended Clark Atlanta University and obtained a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology and a Master’s degree in Social Work. During my time in college I got to have the typical HBCU (Historically Black Colleges & Universities) experience. Being around the varieties of Blackness, witnessing the social life and love of young Black men and women from all over the world, and just embodying the love of Black People and in my case, their mental health. Upon completing my college education, everything I did was centered around mental and emotional healing. It wasn’t until I volunteered at a summer camp with children in Foster Care, that my passion for sexual healing began.
Working with children in Foster Care created the foundation of help heal those sexually traumatized while they are young mentality. For years after this camp experience, the work I did focused on children and their mental, emotional, and sexual development. Now I transition to women who are in need of mental, emotional, and sexual healing not only in their daily lives, but through pregnancy, childbirth, and postpartum.
I decided to embark on my journey in January 2019 to become a certified Holistic Doula with The Matrona. With this certification, I am continuously learning the true importance of advocacy, support, and overall care of women, who are bringing light into this world through pregnancy and childbirth. More specifically, Black women. Being that Black women are 3 to 4 times more likely to die from pregnancy-related causes/complications than white women, support from a Doula is needed and necessary. I am passionate about support, care, and focus on overall well-being and healing.
