Greetings Dear Ones! I am Charonda Gardner (she/her), Holistic Integrative Therapist and owner of Embracing Hope Counseling and Consulting. We are a group private practice that specializes in BIPoC issues.

Our mission is to support our clients in maneuvering some of life’s many challenges to include stress, depression, anxiety, “strong black woman” syndrome, generational trauma, chronic self-abandonment, toxic relationships, codependency, low self-worth, religious trauma/ “church hurt”, spiritual confusion/reclamation of indigenous practices, and so much more! 

Throughout my 10+ years as a therapist I have developed a passion for connecting with other women and supporting them as they step into authenticity and make the journey back home to themselves. As a part of integrating holistic care for my clients, in addition to therapy, I am a Reiki III Master Instructor, Certified Breathwork & Sound Practitioner, and 200-Hour Yoga Instructor. Needless to say, I am an advocate of modalities that integrate the mind, body, and spirit. 

I especially enjoy working with other therapists/helpers/healers, those who identify as Empath or Highly Sensitive, those experiencing spiritual awakenings, and those recovering from childhood traumas. 

The mission of this practice is based on my heartfelt belief that we each already have the tools needed to meet our highest potential but may have forgotten how to connect to our inner source of wisdom.

We are so excited to partner with you on your journey of reconnection, expansion and evolution.
