Quote from Sekou:
"I've seen enough young people's lives turned around through direct service work to feel comfortable about establishing a career in the human services field. I could more effectively impact lives of specific individuals"

Quote from Dr Omar:
"Our mission is to provide competent and culturally relevant psychotherapeutic services to children, adolescent, and adults. In addition, our clinicians receive supervision and weekly training on knowing "who they are" as clinicians, and are encouraged to have their life in order before working with others. PBA strives to eradicate skin color, hair texture, body image, and language accent issues that can still be barriers for Black clients and Black providers working as a team to achieve psychosocio-emotional growth."
