What People Are Saying

My therapist does a really good job at being aware of what’s going on in African American culture and also what black men are experiencing in the midst of everything going on around us.

One of the most special things for me with Hurdle is that I’ve sparked a new level of trust. I’m actually listening and applying the things that are being shared with me and that’s why I’m seeing such great results.
— Angela, 45

[Culturally responsive] means being aware and open. Being honest and not afraid to bring up the cultural differences with clients, couples, and families. Those areas need to be talked about and if they’re not talked about, you don’t know whether they are impacting a relationship or not.
— Daniel, 36
