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 therapists are here to help you show up whole, operate with joy, and live with power.

What People Are Saying

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.

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.
— 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
