N. Oumou Sylla, LMFT , M.A.

Oumou Sylla is a coach, wellness doula and soon-to-be former NY licensed Marriage and Family therapist (License No: 001786). She specializes working with LGBTQ Black, Indigenous and other people of color navigating traumas, relational stress/anxiety, life transitions, burnout, depression and more.

Oumou does so in a way that is mindful of the ways that we are impacted by Anti-Blackness, gender based oppression, ableism, capitalism, state sanctioned violence and other forms of systemic injustice. For this reason, and reasons connected to their identity as a Black, immigrant, queer gender bender her approach to her work is anti-racist and anti-oppressive.

In addition to their work as a therapist, Oumou does work as a speaker (podcasts, panels, workshops), creates content, owns a indie bookstore with her best friend, and serves as a consultant on all things mental health, rest, gender, sexuality and anti-racism.
