Angela Ewing-Boyd is a multidisciplinary health and wellness professional focused on individual therapy and mindfulness practice. She is deeply involved in community-centered, justice-driven social change.
Angela founded Zanasa to lean full-time into working with individuals seeking to improve their relationships with themselves, with their loved ones, and with society both through mindfulness practices and solution-focused and cognitive-behavioral therapies. For individuals, couples, family groups, and small cohorts, Angela's training and experience as a Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker is complemented by her training in meditation and Vinyasa yoga. Over the next two years, Angela would like to expand Zanasa's scope of work to include direct service support and policy reform in the areas of housing and food security, and substance use recovery.
In addition to her therapeutic work, Angela has been working on equity in the areas of health and social access for Black women and children and the communities that surround them. Angela has worked in both advocacy and direct service to support healthy mothers and children, particularly to increase rates of breastfeeding and to decrease maternal mortality among Black women in Wards 5, 7, and 8. She also is experienced as a client advocate in social service access to housing, food security, and education.
Vision and Values
Zanasa Center for Healing and Justice envisions a community in which every member can realize their full potential by exercising their right to access effective, holistic, and empowering wellness services.
Zanasa works from four core values:
KNOWLEDGE OF YOUR NOBILITY
Each human being is born inherently noble, and living from this nobility is our birthright.
THERAPIST AS FACILITATOR
The role of the therapist is to facilitate an environment in which the client can create the changes they envision.
CLIENT SELF DETERMINATION
Clients have the power and resources they need to define their vision of wellness, and this vision guides the services.
Each individual is an indispensable member of the human family, and their wellness is tied to the world's wellness.
