Being a Black Man in America is lit…
but it’s beyond dangerous.


Black Man Misunderstood

As a black man, the anxiety and fear that comes with stepping outside into the eye of the public are simply unexplainable. At AUW Counseling, we want you to know that we are here to help you and to listen to you because we understand; “being a black man in America is lit, but it is also dangerous”.

Our founder and provider of AUW experienced a multitude of difficulties growing up as a Black man. Even in his professional capacity, he continued to experience stigmatization and limited perceptions. This inspired him to seek and implement transformation in an otherwise rigid school of practice. Today, he shares his authenticity, support, and honest communication with his clients and colleagues.

When we say that we understand, we are entirely genuine and honest about our experiences. We are not only familiar with your struggle but are living it as well. Our therapists have experienced the pain, anger, sadness, and paranoia that come with being Black in America. Don’t let the fear of thinking, “No one understands you,” stop you from seeking the supportive services you need.

We’re here to help, because at the end of the day…. Black Man, you’re just misunderstood. But that all ends today!
