Welcome To Kujichagulia

Kujichagulia(koo-jee-cha-goo-LEE-yah) is Swahili for self determination and is also one of the principles of Kwanzaa. Self determination can be defined as the process by which a person controls, and therefore creates, their own life. Assisting our clients in choosing their own paths in life is important to us at Kujichagulia, so we made it our name. Self determination is the cornerstone of therapy, and we strive to empower our clients by providing them with the skills to choose their own destiny. Here at Kujichagulia Wellness, we value the clients’ experiences and remind them that they are the expert in their own life.
