Dr. Mawiyah Kambon believes it’s time for our people to rise to our traditional greatness and that in order to rise we must heal individually and collectively from the ruptures and intergenerational trauma we have experienced. She also believes that “we as African-centered therapists have the power and responsibility to heal our community, restore our ability to self-determine, and change our collective destiny.”
Dr. Mawiyah Kambon is an internationally acclaimed psychologist, traditional healer, and community elder in service to our community for 30+ years.
Though many call her by her profession title, Dr. Kambon prefers her community names of Nana Efia (bestowed as through her initiation into the Akan traditional spiritual system of Ghana, West Africa) and Mama Mawiyah, a name that generations of younger people in the community affectionately call her. As a community elder, she is passionate about helping children and younger generations. In her practice, she helps children, adults, couples, and families restore themselves mind body and spirit.
