It's still clinical, just with a taste of the Hood


The Neighbor “Hood” Therapist

Private practice providing counseling for individuals and couplesI come from nothing and don’t want charity.

Times are hard, and no one truly understands.

Why complain when nothing will change?

I wish I could speak to someone who would truly feel where I’m coming from and help me get through this!

“I see you. I feel you. I know your pain because I use to be where you are.”

I’m Justice Payne-Tyson, a professional and experienced practitioner, and want to introduce myself as your trusted and authentic Neighbor “Hood” Therapist. I have assisted many clients, each with different backgrounds, ethnicities, and upbringing. Over the years, having worked with everyday clients and fellow counselors, I soon discovered a flaw in the system. Many individuals, much like myself, we’re unable to fully open up to the therapeutic process because of stigmas, a lack of counselor authenticity, and an inability to find common ground, which ultimately hindered therapy.

Through my studies and early years of practice, I decided never to lose sight of who I am as an individual. My humble upbringing as a kid from the 4th ward of Paterson, NJ, has provided me the humility, the insight, and the unconditional support to reach and relate to every client. My focus is on being creative and effective, eliminating the hesitation and discomfort often experienced in therapy.

As your therapist, you can expect to laugh, cry, vent, and be unapologetically YOU. Our sessions focus on healing and taking care of your mental health.

Here is some feedback from a few clients who have been helped in the past.

“If I had to sum up counseling with TNHT, I’d say, You never really feel like you’re in therapy; it just kind of feels like someone who finally gets you, wants you to win, and will hold you accountable without all of the judgment and extra BS.

“It’s still clinical, just with a taste of the Hood.”

“He’s always professional and courteous to your needs. Don’t let the name scare you; he’s a teddy bear and phenomenal at what he does.”

I appreciate all of my past, present, and future clients. I aim to be the “Real Model” and appreciate my upbringing because it has helped me grow into the individual I am today. I am the walking embodiment of what the Hood births. Stereotypes will tell you that’s negative; I’m here to show you otherwise. Who says you can’t be educated, professional, Black, and from the Hood!?

My specialties include: Couples, Survivor’s Guilt, Self-Improvement, Spirituality, and Black Male issues.
