A warm welcome to
West Dayton's trusted source for therapy and counseling with African American children, youth and families impacted by trauma.
Welcome from Manicka Thomas, Clinical Social Worker.
Kindred Connections Therapy Center is a community based private practice. We are highly skilled Social Workers, Counselors and Psychologists serving Trotwood, Jefferson Township and West Dayton, Oh.
If you are looking for help that is expert, confidential, culturally relevant and tailored to you and your family's needs, we can help. We provide in person therapy or online therapy via ZOOM. Self referrals are welcome, or you may be referred by your family doctor, children services, the court system, a children's hospital, a psychiatrist or other health care provider.
In our experience, the most common reasons for seeking help are stress or feeling "stuck," general unhappiness, grief and loss, concerns with your child's behaviors, anger management, sexual abuse or racial battle fatigue.
We would love to talk with you about how we can help you reconcile painful and traumatic life events and reconnect with yourself; or how we can help your family get back on track, reconnecting with each other.
