At Hurdle, we put culture first. That means our therapists have the ability to understand your story, your needs.
We know how challenging the responsibilities of day-to-day life can be. Stress can take a serious toll on your mind and body.
Moreso, we understand how racial and cultural injustices – from microaggressions in the workplace to racial traumas – can punctuate the burden of maintaining your wellness.
Hurdle’s therapists provide evidence-based, culturally intentional care, which leads to a stronger relationship with your therapist and improved clinical outcomes.
Daily motivational messages.
Culturally sensitive guided meditations.
Assessments to improve self-awareness.

Hurdle will host quarterly wellness workshops for individuals in Brooklyn Community Center.
Wellness Workshops are designed to help participants critically examine their lives within their cultural context.
Hurdle’s workshops will help you to:
° Develop critical consciousness - enhance awareness of how personal dynamics unfold within social and political contexts.
° Develop knowledge and gain skills to successfully implement practical strategies and culturally competent solutions into daily life.
All Hurdle therapy sessions are held online. You will receive a link to join your session in the reminder email for each of your sessions.
Therapy sessions are 45 minutes long.
During your first session, your therapist will work with you to determine how often you will meet. Most often, our members meet with their therapists on a weekly basis.
It is normal to be unsure or hesitant about trying therapy. Hurdle offers free 15-minute consultations so you can speak with a therapist before officially registering to start therapy.
Hurdle understands that people from diverse racial, ethnic, and cultural backgrounds are having a unique experience in this country. Our therapists are highly trained and dedicated to providing counseling that allows you to show up as your whole self. If you ever feel that your therapist is not a good match for you, Hurdle makes it simple and easy for you to switch providers. We take your feedback seriously and are committed to ensuring you have a positive and empowered experience with therapy.
