Our vision and mission for healing is the Ashe Consciousness: a liberated mind~body~spirit wholeness, that is affirmed and supported by culturally resonant and fully accessible innovative therapies.

There are well-documented barriers for many individuals and populations to seeking and fully engaging in therapy. IAM’s mission is to provide a space for all people to engage in meaningful, comprehensive, transformative healing and growth.


  • Commitment – to our community: the communities of which we are a part, the communities where we live and work
  • Integrity – in our healing work, in our client engagement, and in our disciplined study and practice of therapy and of African indigenous knowledge and healing traditions
  • Creativity and Innovation – in our thinking, in participatory research, and in methods for effective, compelling, and attainable integrative therapies
