For Licensed Therapist that are practitioners or open to African Traditional Spiritual Practices
ATR Friendly Licensed Therapist
People who are involved in Non Judeo Christian traditions such as African Traditional Religions often have unique needs due to our practices. Divination is one form of how problems are solved with devotees. Mentorship, Spiritual Counseling, and Life Coaching may be offered by by priest that have that training. But many priests do not have that training and there are some times when the client doesnt need a divination, but may need therapy from a licensed therapist.. Often therapy can be covered with insurance as well. While therapist are supposed to be objective, there are sometimes stigmas and judgements attached to our practices due to social bias. Its important that those seeking therapy are able to seek therapy without judgment and ideally with a therapist who may understand and not feel as if they must hide that part of themselves from their therapist.
The following is a list of therapist who are either ATR practitioners themselves, and/ or are at least friendly and understand the special needs of ATR devotees. Many offer distance services and or Slaiding scale. While some can only act as licensed therapists in the state they are licensed in, they still may be able to offer Life Coaching using their counseling skills for distance clients.
Disclaimer: Please investigate the best therapist for you. We make no claims nor recommendations to a particular therapist. This is only to be a resource.
