Meet the founder

I am Rachel Johnson-- the daughter of Hiram Johnson Jr. and the mother to a bunch of plant babies. Really, I am a young woman born in Upstate, NY that has a mission to bring accessible healing into the Black Community. I went to school and received my Bachelor's degrees in both Social Work and Child & Family Studies-- and then, just like the nerd I am-- I continued my graduate studies to get my Master's in both Social Work and Marriage Family Therapy. Although, that was an enriching and expensive experience, I came out of school feeling like I was lacking so much information about healing the Black community. It just wasn't enough. So in true nerd form, I dedicated myself to learning anything and everything I could about different holistic healing modalities and supports. As I continue this never ending journey, I know that we need healing now. And we don't need it to be "culturally sensitive"... we need it to representative of our actual culture. By the culture. For the culture. 

 

My goal is to provide access to tools to assist on ones healing journey. I center the Black community around everything I do, 'cause whew chile we are tired. I believe wholeheartedly in the essence of duality-- that you can present your Cardi B. self and Solange self in every space you're in, especially healing. I wish to create a space where you can be your whole self because true healing involves the whole person. Hence, Half Hood Half Holistic.
