Dr. Megan Media Headshot

Culturally Competent

“We take care of our own business.” “Don’t talk to anyone about what goes on in this house.” “You aren’t praying enough.” “Only weak people go to counseling.”

Do you come from a culture where you have heard these things before? Or have you been told that showing emotion is weak?  You are not alone.  At Volition Collective you will find a safe and comfortable place to express your feelings and emotions, manage stress, reduce anxiety, cope with depression or grief, understand anger, improve your marriage and deal with life without violating your family or cultural principles.

Volition Collective is dedicated to providing our clients with culturally relevant counseling services to a diverse clientele, our staff presents our clients with solutions to enhance the understanding of their problems, better understand their choices through affordable counseling for all income levels.

Volition Collective has counselors available 7 days a week to provide flexibility to our clients.  We are a collective of professionals who are as diverse as our clients.
